There’s been a spate of owl patterns recently, and with good reason: they are a very “crochetogenic” theme.
The African Flower owl is an applique combining an owl with googly eyes (how cute is that?!) with an African violet. This is a great project that can be used to decorate literally anything. Also, because it its a small design, you can make it using those pesky yarn scraps that always seem to accumulate all over the place. You can also make two of these, and stuff them to make a cute stuffie children’s toy, although crocheted eyes would be preferred for the smallest of recipients. A link to the free pattern is under the photos.

Of course, owl appliques come in a myriad forms, and here is a more traditionally crocheted one that can also be used as a fun coaster for kids’ place settings. You can also sew these two appliques together to make a softie.
