Cro-Shayley makes Owl Mug Wraps

owlmughugAre you a coffee lover in need of a mug koozie to bring a smile to your mornings? Well Red Heart has the cutest Owl Mug Wrap pattern you’ll have to make for that morning Cup of Joe.

Lizzie wanted the hat and tail to be black, the scales to be hot pink, and the spots to be purple. Luckily, I had all 3 colors in my stash! I used Super Saver Black and Shocking Pink and Shimmer Purple (which added a little girly sparkle to the hat).
