I have been making up some key chains and coffee cozies lately. Today I thought I would share my Owl Key Chain pattern with you.
I saw this little owl on Pinterest, but the link took me to Etsy. I can’t remember if it was for the pattern or the owl, but it was sold. I loved the little own and thought I could come up with something similar. I decided to make a small one and then I made it so that I could stuff it and make it into a key chain.
One of my friends also liked them but she suggested leaving it unstuffed and using it as a pouch for her keys. I made hers a little bigger and added a snap to it.
This one is the one I added the snap to.
and here’s another one.. my first one I made, which of course Mad took!
Ok… and here is the pattern, please bare with me, it is only the 2nd one I have actually written down and shared. I hope you will be able to understand it.

The wings are basically a leaf pattern, so if you can’t understand my instructions you can search for a leaf pattern. lol Or wing pattern.. However you want to do it!
