I made this little owl yesterday for my nephew's Christmas present. The pattern is from Crochet Today Magazine, Sept/Oct 07 issue. It is the "cutest little owl" pattern on page 75. It came together in about 3 hours with little fuss. I used some rice in a tied baggie to weigh down the bottom. I don't know if that was a good idea or not, but I didn't really have anything else to put in there! I think he came out a little larger than the pattern intended, but he looks fine and the stuffing isn't coming through the stitches or anything, so I'm happy with it. Next time, I'll just use a smaller hook!!
Last night, he sat up and watched "The In-Laws" with me. He's a pretty chill dude... I think I might make one of my own to keep me company when the boys are asleep.
