Little owl necklace

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Last night I found the most adorable little crochet owl applique pattern {here}. It's SO cute!.. so I followed the pattern and made one myself! Before I finished it, I knew just what I would do with it... 

Turn it into a necklace!!!
 The pattern I followed gives instructions on everything, 
but here's how I did it anyways..

After crocheting the body and head, I hot glued them individually onto a piece of white felt and cut them out.
For the eyes I used felt and beads. I just hot glued the beads to the little circles of felt and glued them down to the head. For the nose and feet I used yarn and a big needle {oh yah, this part was done before gluing the head to felt}.
For adding the necklace chain I put a line of hot glue across the back of the head and laid the chain straight across, added another line of glue on top and covered that with a strip of felt.
And then I just hot glued the head to the body! 

 {I traced a little button to make the felt circles}

The ears are so cute {especially the ones in the pattern I followed}, 
but I cut my end pieces of yarn a little to short. And the one ear is a little twisted.

AnyHOO, {I just had to say it!)

Now I have me a new little friend

.. and a new necklace :)

Hi little cutie!  I sure like you!

.. I always look like such a little girl! haha!
.. will wearing this owl necklace make me look even younger and sillier than I already am?!!?

Anyway, am I aloud to say that I'm proud of myself for making this??
.. cause.. *blush blush* I am!
