Fly Home



Just a quick post to show you the wee owl I gave as a gift to a good friend.
And yes, this is yet another project that has inspiration rooted in those damn books*.
In this case, though, it was most definitely used for good.

I crocheted her from part of a crazy-ass-huge ball of Red Heart, and made a wee Fimo beak and eyes.

I had forgotten how fun crochet is. I need to crack open my copy of Happy Hooker again!

That owl is so cute, and exactly why I want to learn to crochet- so I can make adorable little stuffies like that one!

And I'm in agreement with the other comments- that's one awesome necklace.
