I have really enjoyed making these fun crochet owl purses, perfect for your iPhone or iTouch!
I am about to embark upon a wonderful stretch of days of crocheting owl purses, celebrating the holidays with family, blowing glass with Dean, and more crocheting. I have a new idea about a combo crochet/glass concept that needs to be more fully explored and hopefully started or even better – finished! The holidays are the best time to chill out from work and sink into some serious creating.
Oh and, I just stumbled upon Jill Barklem, a childerns book author/illustrator – how have I never seen her work before?? Must find these books somewhere, they are amazing!
I have been working the past month or so on a bunch of new merino wool crochet scarves – I am really happy how they are turning out!
The patterns for the blue and red scarves are from this awesome crochet pattern book The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Design, a must have for any level of crocheter. The blue scarf pattern is on page 152 pattern #190 and the red scarf pattern is on page 219 pattern # 290.
The pattern for the brown scarf is from the equally awesome book 220 more Crochet Stitches. Also a must have for your crochet reference library. This pattern is on page 35 pattern #I.71.
About 4 years ago in 2008 I first made this cute little crochet Easter bonnet. I was messing around making hats and made this one without writing my pattern down. I also used a pansy flower design that was not my own. So, fast forward to 2012 and I finally have created the pattern using my original pansy flower design!
As you can see from the comments on this post, I am WAY overdue!
You can purchase this pattern several places:
Here are pictures of my new design:
Here are the pictures of my original prototype, the hat is the exact same one as above except this hat below does not have my original pansy:
