Happy Wednesday everyone!
Oh My Gosh!
I am sooooo excited to show you this crochet owl pillow that I just finished!
I found the pattern on Etsy and just fell in love with the granny circle tummy design!
I bought the pattern immediately and started crocheting in my favorite colors!
I started with the large owl pattern, one strand of worsted weight yarn (the pattern calls for holding two strands together) and a size J/10 hook.
I love how big and cuddly she turned out!
My pillow measures about 17" high and 16" wide. :)
I embellished her a little by making a sleeping owl face for the back of the pillow so that she is actually two sided!
I also added little wings and feet which I took pictures of to show you...
I just love how she turned out!
The hardest part is picking which side to show first! :)Here are some photos I took for you to enjoy as she came to life!
The granny circle is growing!
The circle was so FUN to make!
You actually get to make two for this pattern.
One for the front and one for the back.
Then you crochet a head and border around the body for both sides.
Archie was a very good helper!
Then you sew a fabric insert and stuff it!
I actually filled the head with stuffing first to make sure I got it up into the owl ears at the top and gave myself a easy to sew through surface to sew the eyes and beaks into.
She is complete!
That was so much FUN!
More FUN is on the way!
Tomorrow is May 31st already!
