Little owl softie....

Hi there!

Meet Eddie Owl!

Here are some photos of my finished owl project, it was fun to make, as I didn't have a pattern (except for the sunburst granny square) and just made it up as I went.

Did a bit of embroidery around his face - you like?

I am right into making toys at the moment and I have another made up critter nearly finished, so should be able to show you soon.

It's a pretty crappy day here, over cast and humid, so I am going to take the boys to spend some Christmas money, and then I might get a bit more hooky time in, sounds like a good plan to me!
Have a great day!


  1. Eddie is utterly adorable. I'm amazed that you just made it up as you went along. You are one clever (and immensely talented) woman!

  2. That is really really NEAT-O! Not sure I'd have the patience or creativity to pull that one off... kudos!

  3. Hey Jules, just discovered your blog and I loooooove your owl.
    Colours are gorgeous and those eyes, fab.
    Great job, you must be chuffed with Eddie.
    The granny square looks brilliant too.

    Humid here in the North East after an inch of rain overnight, but there is a bit of a breeze

  4. P.S. Sorry, just realised I have visited before, obviously need to visit more often lots of beautiful crocheted things. I have a bag of wool sitting in front of me and have seen so many ideas on your blog, very inspirational...

  5. I love Eddie, he's so cute!!!!! Great colours too. cheers, Jan
