The other day I stumbled across the cutest crochet owl pillow patterns and I just had to have them! This lady does phenomenal work and has a great eye for color. I'm not really interested in making pillows with the patterns, however. I'm thinking more along the lines of cute purses, bags, or backpacks. As a matter of fact, I'm in the process of making a little owlie for the cutest little girl! I haven't decided whether or not I'm making this into a girly bag or maybe into a little backpack. I'm following the pattern as written and will let the finished size dictate what this little owl will ultimately turn into.
As you can see in the photo below, I've almost completed the front side of the owl. Sorry for the lousy photo! The colors are actually MUCH brighter than the picture shows. I will take better photos when the item is finished:
Do you get the idea? :) This will make a rockin' bag or backpack! I may even make some coordinating shoes to go with it (the jury's still out on that one!). It's been a quick and fun project though honestly, the pattern has been a little difficult to read. Before I make any more of these, I will most likely rewrite the pattern a bit and make some adjustments. I'm assuming English is not the first language of the gal who wrote it, but CUDOS to her for the beautiful patterns she has created! Plus, she allows you to sell things created with her patterns as long as you credit her for the design. How cool is that?!? Stay tuned! More to come on this soon!
