Frugally Peachy Handmade Giveaway: Oscar The Owl!

Frugally Peachy Handmade Giveaway: Oscar The Owl!

Just before Christmas last year, my friend and I set each other a challenge of handmaking a present for each other. I love giving and receiving handmade items, but wanted to try something a little different for my friend who was both, a proud new rent-er of her own place AND a huge fan of owls! So, after trawling Pinterest, I thought I would try my hand at making a little owl mug-warmer…meet Oscar the Owl! He may not be cutesy, but he’s lovely, moderately creepy and snuggly for your afternoon cuppa!

Made from brown and cream double knit yarn; I’ve taken a lot of inspiration for Oscar from some of the china owls my Nan used to collect. My Nan was too cool for school – she had an owl obsession waaaaay before woodland animal interior themes became cool!
