A few months ago I found a really cute pattern to make tiny little owls, designed by Josephine Wu from A Morning Cup of Joe. I crocheted a bunch of them last December to decorate the Christmas tree, then recently I made a few again as keychains.
It is the perfect pattern for beginners, the owls are very easy to make. Watch out though, once you crochet one it is very difficult to stop… Hello, assembly line! Since it doesn’t require a lot of yarn you can use scraps from leftovers.
The pattern ask for safety eyes, but I just glued some goggly eyes instead because I had just bought a pack. I also used felt for the nose instead of embroidering it, and added little feet.
I love this pattern, if you run out of gift ideas, or if you don’t have a lot of time to take on big projects, this little owl will make anybody smile!
