I’ve felt like crocheting something small again for a while as the bigger projects of blanket making have taken over recently. This owl purse pattern is one I’ve had in my folder for a while; so I decided to have a go at it this morning. I didn’t expect it to be so fast to make, so here is the finished item!
He measures 10 x 10.5cm, just to give you an idea of the dimensions. I used a 5mm hook – again for a change as I’m using a 4mm for both blankets and like a leetle variety in life. The yarn is pretty coloured acrylic from yesterday’s Let’s Get Crafting magazine pack.
For now Gilbert is in place on the board in The Little Room just so I can look at him when I’m in here. Sorry this is the best of several fuzzy photos, the light’s not good in here today.
Here’s the link to the pattern I used (you’ll spot the bits I left out!) by Mama G’s Big Crafty Blog
I was about to say… “is he a purse” then I looked at the link!! Cute. If you put a little zip across the top you could have him in your bag and your pennies wouldn’t fall out??
I think I’m going to get some press studs to sew a few along the top so they can fasten it. But nothing so dirty as coins will sully Gilbert! Maybe I’ll use him to store my ear-phones? :-)
