Sova Amigurumi, Keychain, Bag Accessory for Kids & Adult

Sova01_1000

 

Hi my dears,

If you are looking for last minute Valentine day gift idea, I have a “last minute” written pattern for you, which if FREE for limited time! I definitely overdone myself to design something new, write a pattern, draw diagrams, take pictures, tested the pattern in only 3 days. So let me introduce…

 

Sova
Sova means owl in Russian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech and a bunch of other languages and my most favorite and lovely bird since I remember myself ;o)

This pattern is pretty versatile. Made with sport weight yarn, these lovebirds can be used as home decor (they are settled on my desk) or as a bag accessory. Crocheted with fine or thread weight yarn they will make a cute keychain. Crocheted with  worsted or bulky yarn they will make a pillow or a toy – just change eye-buttons to crocheted eyes (I think I would love to try to make a pillow, let me see ;o))

This pattern is available for free download at Raverly. PLEASE NOTE: This offer expires on February 16th 2017 at 11:59 pm PST time.

 

In the other news, after my latest Owleta mini collection, I received several emails if here are some owl designs for boys… So, please welcome Owliver, a very first owl design for boys (more to come in March):

Sova03_1000

 

And it means that Sova is planned as growing time to time collection for Owleta and Owliver designs.

Oh, and below is a very first designed sova (not included in the pattern):

Udemy + Owleta Hat Pattern Update

ny2017_hellobar_banner_en (1)

Hi my dear friends,

I hope you enjoy a new 2017 as much as we are!! We are so excited and feel to turn this year into learning something new.

So, thank you Udemy for such AWESOME $10 per course deal – personally I ordered 12 courses so far… and still looking for more, – there are really so MUCH interesting stuff!!

If you are curious, below are some courses I got:

Learn to draw fashion with Adobe Illustrator CC Intermediate

Graphic Design Bootcamp

Social Media Marketing 2017 – Learn PPC on 10+ Platforms

…and The Complete Android N Developer Course – because to my surprise, I found that I really missed “that” stuff

A reason of this my unusual evening post is that Udemy promotion ends January, 10 on 11:59 PM PST. It’s amazing deal to get courses for only $10 if you are looking for something new to learn.

And now for the pattern update. The pattern is 90% done – all diagrams are finished as well as writing instructions. All sizes are tested too. What I still need to do: take pictures of Option 2 and detail pictures of option 1. And polish written instruction a bit. I hope to make this pattern available in the beginning of next week.

 

Yours,
Alla Koval
