a crochet project: owl pram spanner
Started another quick little project this week: crocheting little owls!
I bought this amigurumi-type pattern a while ago here. (There is also a Ravelry site for this pattern but the link doesn't seem to work...) The designer sells other accessories too, like the safety-eyes, clips and little wooden balls for the finishing touches.
For this project I use a cotton crochet yarn in the colors of the nursery (our stroller is black): Lana Grossa Cotone and crochet with metric size 2 needles. The stuffing comes from my trusty IKEA pillows (weird, but if you don't need large amounts it is way cheaper to buy the cheapest IKEA pillow than to buy a small bag of stuffing...)
