Crochet Owl Pillow #2


Happy Wednesday everyone!

I am so excited to show you the new owl pillow I just finished.

I made the large owl pillow a few weeks ago and I just love how it turned out so I also had to make the medium sized owl for a smaller space that was just "hooting" for an owl pillow to fill it up!


I purchased the pattern on etsy in a wonderful & inspiring shop called ATERGcrochet.

I had so much FUN picking out the colors and watching it spring to life.

Just like its big brother, I added some of my own details like the sleepy eyes on one side and her awake eyes on the other.  I also added wings and feet to my pillow for FUN!


Here is the first circle completed ...


... and here it is getting a hug from Archie!

He is the best helper!


Tee Hee!

It looks like I made him work a little too hard today!


Here it is with the head crocheted on top of  each side of the front and back circles, sew together and stuffed with the pillow insert I made from fabric and polyfil.

...now he has toes!

...and wings!


Ta Da!

The awake owl side!

Good Morning!


The sleepy owl side!

Nitey Nite!

The place I put him is extra FUN because I get to see both faces depending where i am standing in the room!

The awake owl side is perched facing the windows so he can see out!


... and the sleepy owl is resting on the couch across from the wonderful pillow I already had!

Now my couch is completely filled up!

I think it looks great!

Fred loves it too but made the point that it is like every couch and chair in our house...

Very pretty, but there is no room to sit!

Ha! Ha!

Luckily I fill the space up with fiber art so they are easy to move!

I am glad Fred loves me and the art I make and collect!

Ha!

Oh, he is super-cute Melissa and looks wonderful on your couch. The problem is, the couch looks so good now, I wouldn't want to disturb them by sitting there, LOL!
