An amigurumi owl

Any crochet fans out there? This one’s for you! I (finally – it took many attempts) learnt how to crochet a couple of years ago now; I find it a handy skill to have when a new baby is born. When my lovely friends Brendyn & Sachi became parents to a beautiful boy Ren it was time to hit Etsy and find a new creature to crochet!

I came across Fresh Stitches and fell a little in love with her owl creation. What is it with owls at the moment? They’re everywhere!

Tips and tutorials

Stacey sells lots of other crochet patterns too, and what I really love about this particular crocheter is how much she shares on her blog. The pattern came with plenty of clickable links taking you directly to a video tutorial ensuring you’d know exactly what you were doing.

I made the owl in a slightly lighter weight wool and, as I also crochet quite tightly, he’s a little smaller than the pattern suggested. But I don’t think that makes him any less adorable! Meet Ohmi the owl…

I quite fancy crocheting a bonsai tree next :)

Blabla knits

Knitted toys with old fashioned charm but using modern designs… I’m going to be a fan of that. And Blabla confirmed it. Designed by Florence Wetterwald and knitted by Peruvian artisans, Blabla toys are made from the finest fibres making them irresitisbly soft and perfect for your little one to snuggle up to. The mix of old and new makes a beautiful toy that will not become dated; the type of toy a child will keep when all the others get passed on. As they put it on their site…

“Florence’s poetic, simple and vibrant style combined with the ancestral knowledge of the knitters has created products which look contemporary, yet feel like old friends.”

Here are some of the friends your little one could become acquainted with…

I want the panda hat for myself. I have a small head so it may just fit! :)
