Does anyone know of an Owl potholder pattern? Been looking all over the interweb and can't find one I like. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for a potholder pattern that I found and printed the potholder with the owl on it but did not get the instructions. I would like to get this. Would you be able to send it to me at hunie590@yahoo.com? Thank you and you have a nice site. Margaret

I just finished the Starburst Hotpad, I had a really hard time putting all 5 petals together or at least the final piece of yarn sewn in just a certain way to make the petals. I never mastered this step but like I do alot I put my own spin on it and accomplished the same look. I think the original instructions would have made it something I would make more or, but since I had to take more time working it together I will move on to another pattern and try to conquer it. I'm self taught and still teaching myself, but there are so many videos or how to do things it makes the process of learning easier. Thank you.
