Birthday Owl

Hello everybody!
Thank you so much for visiting me today! I´m so happy about everyone who visits me here! :)
I have add a few new challenges to my Year of projects list last week! One is to make a little handmade gift for all my family members and close friends, not necessarily for their birthdays, just to show how much I love them and they mean to me.
Last week my little niece celebrated her 7th birthday and I have decided to make her a little bag for her hankies to carry them with her to school.

She is an huge owl fan like me, so I have used Aisha Kenza´s great Owl Amigurumi pattern, which is originally for a cuddly  stuffed owl. But if you skip the stuffing and leave an opening on the back of the owl, you will get a cute little bag! I have used fine cotton yarn and a 2mm hook to get the small size of 9cm. My niece liked her gift it a lot and all her little friends want such a cute little owl now too! : )


My year of projects update:

•Finishing all my wips---1/16
•Making handmade gifts for my loved ones----1/12

Now I will have a look what all the other group members made last week!

I wish you all a wonderful new week full of sunshine and creativity!
We are going on a short trip to the sea tomorrow!!! I can´t wait to sit at the beach! :)
