Owl Have Another One

24 Apr

I am totally in love with these little fellas!  They are irresistibly cute and easy to work up in some spare time.  The pattern is wonderfully written and supported with large, clear photos.  Find it here.

So far, I have finished 4 of these, with some body parts waiting for assembly.  I have yet to add the separate wings because I don’t think it really needs them and I’m all for less hand-sewing.  Now, new to me, because I’m really not much of a crafter, are ‘safety eyes’ and I bought a bag of them from Amazon.  I have the 12mm size and that seems to be about right.  I also bought some buttons to use and put those on the owl with the “spiderman” colors.  I prefer the look of the buttons, I think, but the safety eyes are easier.

 The yarns are a mishmash of acrylic scraps and bits of single stashed skeins that don’t really have a purpose; mostly I Love This Yarn and Vanna’s Choice. You’ll also need some stuffing, for stuffing the little birds.  Don’t overstuff, or they’ll get a little wall-eyed on ya.

They make great little gifties, don’t you think?

    Very cute. I’ve not attempted toys at this point though I want to for the granddaughter

    These little guys are addictive, Elaine. Can’t make just one!
