Sleepy Owl

Much like the Little Owl  hat, my latest creation is the Sleepy Owl Hat. I thought it would look cute to embroider long eyelashes on the eyes to make it look very sleepy. I can just picture this hat on infants who are fast asleep, without a care in the world. I always make hats using the Double Crochet stitch, but this hat was made with the Half Double Crochet stitch. It turned out a little smaller than I had hoped, but I was still happy with the result. It's easier to embroider on the little details with a smaller stitch. 

I just received a shipment of my first business cards! I thought it would be fun to insert the cards in orders I receive on Etsy, so people can easily find all my information and order more items in the future! I love making these for people. Crocheting is very calming and actually fun. I know, I'm a dork! :) This is the second year of ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, where artists from all over enter their art pieces in a contest. There is art all over the city, everywhere you turn, and people are coming from all over just to see it! I think if I take my kids to look at art, I'll have them wear some of my hats and see if anyone asks about them. My business cards may come in handy!
