|Ollie the Plush Owl|
Introducing some adorable toy crocheted hoot owls found in my Etsy Shop, Coastal Crochet Crafts.
I've crocheted a number of plush owls over the years, mostly in the natural colors of browns and grays, black and white. Oliver Owl, pictured here, is one such creation in crochet in shades of brown. He prefers to be called 'Ollie' and is a cute and cuddly soft yarn owl.
Of all the birds in nature, owls seem to fascinate children the most. Perhaps it's the bird's big eyes, or more possibly because of its 'Whoo, whoo Hoot' voice, but owls are popular in toys and books and many other forms.
Toy Crocheted Hoot Owls in ColorRecently I was asked to make a group of three plush owls for a new mom who was decorating her baby's nursery in an Owl Theme. She asked for this set of owls in pinks, greens and blues.
Those colorful owls turned out so cute that I got to thinking about all the colors in the rainbow. I suddenly realized I didn't have to stay with nature's colors for my handmade plush toy owls because plush animals are part of a child's imaginative play and can be any color you choose. So, I'd like you to meet a couple more owls in playtime colors.
|Petunia the Plush Owl|
|Grace the Gray & Pink Owl|
Petunia's friend Grace is a toy owl in shades of gray and pink. Grace has a dark gray head, wings and feet. Her body is a gray/pink ombre combination. Her beak is gold and eyes are crocheted in two parts - light gray and pink - and are fastened to the head with black plastic safety eyes. Grace stands 8 inches tall and is about 5 inches wide.
Both Petunia and Grace would love to become a playmate to a child. They join Ollie Owl in my group of crocheted Amigurumi toy owls currently keeping me company in my Etsy Shop Coastal Crochet Crafts.
Children's Hoot Owl Reading
Now, if you'll excuse me, Petunia, Grace and Ollie are calling me to come read them a favorite book about how an owl lost her 'hoot'.
