More Baby Owl Amigurumi

This is the baby month!  Whether or not my little one has arrived in the world yet, I thought it would be fun to share another baby themed project... Baby Owl Amigurumi!

I am much more confident starting the project this time.  At this point I had completed over a dozen crochet amigurumi projects.  Wahoo!

I love my first crochet amigurumi so much that I had to create some more!  Once again, I used a size F crochet hook and remnants of Wool of the Andes for these little ornaments.  (Colors: Dove Heather, Mink Heather and Bittersweet Heather.)  Each owl used about 6 g (12-13 yards) of yarn.

This time, when fastening off I did one slip stitch to finish off round 12.  This is my only "modification"!

These are so addictive that they are hard to stop making!  I had planned on making only 3, and well, you can see what happened.

Last time I had some trouble with getting the felt for the eyes to glue down properly.  It took me a couple of times to get it to feel secure.  This time, I used pins to keep the eye felt down while the glue was drying.  It is a little creepy looking, but hopefully this will work better!  The pins created some holes, but it was easy enough to fix by agitating the fabric with the end of a dpn.

Many holes
Holes gone!

What a fun and sweet little project.  I now have 7 little owlettes.  How many would you end up creating?
