It's time to show my latest creation! I'm so excited, I just lovelovelove it!
It's an owl hat! I don't exactly remember where I got the idea, I mean they're everywhere on the internet. But when I saw this one I knew I wanted to make my own owl hat with even more colors if possible. Then came the problem, all the patterns I could find were for little babies and children, but I wanted one for myself. Who can resist such a great hat?! Maybe that's the child in me, but I absolutely love these kind of things.. In the end I just looked for a pattern for a hat with earflaps and found this. Although I did not follow the pattern exactly, because I've got my own way of making a flat circle, but it was a good guideline. Now I come to think of it, the earflaps I also didn't do quite according to the pattern, because I wanted them slightly bigger, I like my ears to be fully covered. I just love it that with crochet you can make you own adjustments so easily! Anyway, when my hat was finished I just made the eyes, beak and ears and stitched them on there, then some breading and it was finished! Let's see some more!
The light is not great at 9.15PM (read: lamplight!) but I could not longer wait to show it off ;-) Just look at the cuteness!
And I am really proud of the ears with their fluffy little threads, a close-up!
I hope this brights your day as it did mine. I had so much joy creating it. Tomorrow I will wear it the whole day while citytripping, already a good day! Okay, just one last picture and then I'm gone..
