The idea for these little guys originally came to me when browsing a book store. I love sweet little bookends for children's book shelves. When stuffed with a heavier filling (I used popcorn kernels) the largest owl makes a perfect bookend.I had to make other sizes of course and I suddenly had a sweet family of chubby little owls! Hope you and your loved ones think they are as adorable as I do. Pattern is written in American Standard crochet terms.
