An Owl Gift.... Plus links for other owl crafts and ideas.

My sweet friend just graduated with her teaching degree. She loves owls, so I decided to make a set of owl-y things for her and for her new classroom. Here's what I came up with:

An over-sized shoulder bag. Here's the tutorial to make your own.
A zippered pencil bag. The owl applique for this came off some very ugly pink/white polka dot fleece from JoAnn's. I bought just enough of the fleece to get a few owls and then cut them out of the ugly fabric.
I wish this picture would have been better.... This is a little felt owl key chain.
Pencil topper, thanks to this idea, and an owl notepad from Target $1 bin.

Owl sunglasses case, thanks to this tutorial.
Wooden sign decorated with modge podge and fabric.
When planning this gift, I searched all over the web for ideas. Unfortunately, with the new baby, I wasn't able to make as many things as I had wanted to. Here's some more great owl projects:

These are fabulous! I love owls, but so many owl crafts are not actually all that cute--but these are! Thanks for posting these!
