Owl Applique

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Ideas on how to use these appliques...
*These would be great to apply to any project.
*You can add them to kitchen towels,
*turn them into a keychain or fridge magnet.
*You can also make several and make a garland.
*Attach a ribbon to make them into bookmarks.

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
Width: approx. 3” (from wing to wing) x Length: 2.75"
...but they can vary based on yarn and hook size.

ASSEMBLE
     EYES...place them as shown in the image below. For the pupils, I use a sharpie. If you're going to use a sharpie just be careful not to smear the marker. You can also embroider or use felt for the black part of the eye.
     BEAK...using the gold yarn make a triangle shaped beak.
     WINGS...sew them on the sides of the owl.
