Fluffy Knitted Owl Babies

I know there is only one of them but a little friend of mine has asked for some owl babies to go with her favourite book so here is the first one he's only about 4 inches (10cm) high. I shall knit the other two when I have got some more eyes. It's a really simple pattern so it won't take long. I used to love the book 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell and Patrick Benson.The pattern is here if you want to make one.

Pair of knitting needles size   4mm,UK 8, US 6
Oddment of feather/ eyelash yarn in cream and brown
Pair of safety eyes(15mm diameter)
Embroidery silk/wool to embroider beak
Toy filling
