I finished this a few weeks ago, but forgot to share. I'm pretty thrilled with how the cabled owls came out. My sister picked it up and said "Hey! Are those owls??" so I think I'm going to skip the whole button eye thing and just leave it as-is. I'm worried the baby will eat the buttons anyway.
The whole shebang
I'm super excited to give it to the mammas... but the shower is still a couple months away. Le sigh.
