My cousin Heidi is having a baby girl, Lillie Jane. And I made this little owl for her named "Hootenanny!"
A couple things I would have done differently:
1. Use a smaller crochet hook, and crochet tighter so the filling doesn't show through.
2. Put more weight at the bottom of the bird so it could stand upright.
3. Stop the neck 2 rows shorter, so there wouldn't be as much wobble room for the head.
4. Attach eyes before stuffing head (which was in the directions, but I must have missed that part...).
But overall, I think she turned out ok.
