Hi all Brown Owls! The Finnish Brown Owls (=still only me) would like to challenge you all to make softies for Mirabel. It is a charity much closer to you than to me. The distance has not prevented me from being a Brown Owl for three years already, nor from making softies for a good cause. You can read more about the Mirabel foundation and Pip's appeal here.
Here is my this year's softie, all recycled and whipped together in a very short time. The Flickr group has lots of links to free patterns, and you can get good ideas from the pictures of earlier years. I have my own blog post with links to my previous softies for Mirabel here.
The Mirabel projects have always been my Brown Owls activities as well. Last year I knitted two bunnies for my knitting badge and sent the results to Mirabel. I hope you will take my challenge and make at least one toy in every group of Brown Owls. Kids need toys for Christmas!
