Cro-Shayley makes Owl Mug Wraps

owlmughugAre you a coffee lover in need of a mug koozie to bring a smile to your mornings? Well Red Heart has the cutest Owl Mug Wrap pattern you’ll have to make for that morning Cup of Joe. Two of my college friends asked me to make them one and how could I say no? It’s so super cute, quick and easy, and a perfect project to get rid of any scrap yarn you have laying around. You can use any colors too! I might keep this one in my back pocket for some Christmas gifts.

Of course, I made a few adjustments to the pattern to make it my own but not many so here goes…

Cutie Blue Bird HatA friend of mine is having a little girl in March and her nursery theme is owls. I found Red Heart’s Cutie Blue Bird Hat pattern and thought what a perfect gift it would be! Maybe they can use this for some “cutie” newborn pictures.

I used Super Saver Orchid for the hat, Baby Pink for the feathers, Bright Yellow for the nose and White and Delft Blue for the eyes.

See the pictures below of my progress. If you’re making a baby hat with earflaps for the first time, this pattern is a good one to use. It’s quick with easy steps….my kind of project! ;)

Reflective YarnI’m on a Red Heart Reflective Yarn kick…..I don’t know about you, but I just can’t get enough of it! Last year I made headbands for my nieces, nephew and cousins when we went on our family mountain trip (click here to read that blog) and I’m thinking about making more. The way the reflective thread woven into the yarn lights up during a flash photo just amazes me…I’m easily amused, I know. ;) Continue reading “Cro-Shayley makes a Reflective Crate”
