Adorable Owl Softie Pattern / Tutorial

Hoot! Hoot! this is such a cute pattern  thanks to  Toad’s Treasures, it would have to be the easiest owl pattern I have seen .

As Christmas is just around the corner I am going to whip up a few for gifts.

I am planning to make one “shabby chic” with lovely pastel fabric and trimmed with laces and silk ribbons , I have a picture in my mind, another one I am going to make in little boys fabric and add a few novelty car button, as this one is for a budding rev head , still planning the one for the little girl, something cute & pretty .

My creative juices are flowing, off to make a start !

Here is the link to Trey’s Owl Pattern / Tutorial

Macaron Purses – Free Pattern / Tutorial

Forget the neverending pack of Tim Tams; I’ve found the Macaron that lasts forever!

Take a look at this  Free Macaron Coin Purse Pattern  thanks to Craft Passion

This little purse is super cute and almost good enough to eat.  It is quite limited in size  but great to keep some small treasures or piece of jewellery. Of course it would be perfect for keeping a few coins for the parking metre or just those times when you need a little cash.

You could even attach one to your key chain – however you decide to use your macaron purse, you will certainly receive lots of comments.

Don’t just make one, make a batch of them and create a Macaron Croquembouche – just kidding!  But they would make great little gifts or stocking fillers .

Crochet Owl Family Amigurumi Pattern

Crochet is my favourite thing to do when I really want to relax, to me nothing is better than a cold night, a glowing fire or heater  a cup of coffee and a crochet hook & a ball of wool .

I love to crochet toys & small items  and these days there are so many patterns around I sometimes take three days to decide which one to start next .

Now this one seemed perfect for me , ticked all the boxes – a family of three adorable owls.

These cute little fellows could be toys, decorations, the small one could be used on a key ring, you could even use them as pincushions (they won’t feel a thing)  really!

Here is the  Free Owl Family Pattern from the very talented Repeat Crafter Me
