I crocheted this large owl using a Bernat pattern from here. I altered the look a bit, but am very pleased with the end result. I used Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn.

I crocheted this little bugger for my sweet baby nephew. I used a free pattern for the octopus from Esshaych, and then sort of winged it with the top hat since I couldn't find one that was exactly what I wanted. I used a pattern from here as a guide, but that hat is more for a toddler. It is my first design, and I'll try to post the pattern below, but you'll have to bear with me if there at any issues with it. The octopus is dinky, about the size of my palm, and frankly I'm pleased as punch with how it turned out!
Mini Top Hat Pattern
I used regular Sugar & Cream thread, and pulled two stands out. There id probably a better way to do that, but I improvised with what I had. I also used a size D-3.25mm hook.
Magic ring 10
Inc (2sc in each st) (20)
Back loop only - SC 20

Good luck, I hope I wrote it all down right. Let me know if I need to make changes.

This is a set of four tags that I made the other day when I was in a scrapping mood, but didn't really have enough time to put together a layout. I figure I'll put these out of Etsy and see if I get a bite. I used these little chipboard "Technique Tiles Rectagles" from Technique Tuesday as the base, then decoupaged some scrap paper for the backgrounds. The titles are chipboard sentiments from K & Company and then of course I added ink, ribbons, buckles, flowers, pearls and rhinestones followed by another coat of decoupage for sealing the titles.
