I pin the BEST stuff on Pinterest.
I LOVE to just browse through all of my awesome boards and gaze at the things I will make...some day...
Then, SOME DAY arrives, and it's PIN_DO!!!
Yesterday, after hours of computer work, my crochet hook called me into the next room and literally begged me to make something - how could I not comply?
"Hoot," called the hook. "Hoot Hoot Heart," it cried again. I couldn't help it - I had to go. This is what happened:
I have a friend who loves owls, so I started pinning them...mostly they are of the crochet variety.
With some cotton worsted by my side and a trusty H-hook, I got to work.
I made this:
It's from this pattern here: OWL PATTERN (found on Pinterest).
I made two (front and back). The back side didn't have eyes or a beak. I crocheted the two sides together. On the join round, I also made a bit more of a picot where the ears are - to make them more pronounced. I stuffed it with some polyester fluff.
Since my friend LOVES owls, I thought a heart was in order. I have a big pinterest board with hearts. I wanted one I could stuff. I uses this pattern here: HEART PATTERN (I love the way she made the square at the beginning of the heart - genius, never saw it done that way, must remember!).
And ONE MORE THING.... It needed a flower - why? Because I've been itching to make a few of these flowers. Love them. So colorful and happy (just like my new running shoes). I used this pattern here: FLOWER PATTERN.
I strung them all together - tho. frankly I might take it apart and re-join them. Not so happy with my joining. I did it all very fast to be done because I was excited to see it finished, but I really don't like the way I've connected them. Nonetheless, I took some photos (didn't turn out as well as I would've liked) and here's the happy little owl with heart and flower.
NOTE: See how happy the new running shoes are?
