Some months ago my delightful niece, Lexi, sent me this picture wondering if I could make one of these little phone pockets that she could give her mom for Christmas.
Of course I was happy to take up the challenge.
A Google search revealed several gorgeous pictures of owls (click on the picture to enlarge it, click again to close the image):
Inspired by these photos I created this cell phone cozy (of course, I didn’t dare post this before today):
For the body and wings I used a bit of leftover variegated wool from a previous project and a 3mm hook and an alternating dc/sc pattern. The eyes and beak are done with #8 perle cotton. I didn’t use a pattern, just invented as I went. I had to make it somewhat generic as I’m not even sure what model of phone Cheryl has. I used my iPod Touch (first generation) as a model.
Trina suggested I make a pattern and tutorial for this little guy. Perhaps I shall, someday.
