my little niece wanted me to make her a little crocheted owl since i had made myself one. so i made her one that is a bit different than mine and a tad bigger.

i will admit i am very new at crocheting and it took me several tries to get this little guy started but then it was a breeze! i used sport weight acrylic and a size ?? very small hook :)

tutorial: ipad sleeve

i made a new ipad cover using my old tutorial found here.

tutorial: ipad sleeve @sneezerville

for this one i used my trusty heavy weight canvas. i squirked purple fabric paint all over one side and then folded it in half for the Rorschach look that i like to play with. i let it dry and then did it one more time. it gave it a more dimensional look with the second layer being even darker than the first. i used a button from my stash.

for the lining i used some cotton fabric that i had in the stash with some fusible interface for padding.

super quick easy project.
