Adhesive Spray

I used adhesive spray for this project. This gives a flat kind of look to the project.

(NOTE: Open the window and cover the workspace whilst using this. The spray smells really strong and even though I had a A3 pad covering my workspace it still got everywhere lol).

The adhesive spray that was used for this project is not showing online but it was purchased from Hobbycraft instore and it is called ‘Permanent Adhesive Spray 200ml’

Adhesive Foam Pads

For a more 3D look I used foam pads in between the layers. (NOTE: try to hide the foam pads under each layer by cutting them to size so you can’t see them). Link:

Blue Light Grip Cricut Mat

I used the blue light grip mat for all the layers.

Crochet Owl Keyring Pattern – Free Link

Crochet Owl Keyring Pattern – Free Link.

This pattern is easy to follow and I had so much fun creating this project. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This could be made into the keyring shown or used as a handbag charm.

Materials I used on this project:

I used a 3.5mm crochet hook, but you could probably get away with using a 3mm or 4mm depending on what type of yarn used.

The yarn I used is Stylecraft Special DK yarn –

Aspen – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

White – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

Grey – Stylecraft Special DK yarn from Deramores – https://tidd.ly/385q5aU

I used less than 50g of all the Aspen, Grey and White yarn.

The best soft toy filling I have found is from Hobbycraft. It’s usually on offer, so the more you buy the cheaper the price – https://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/soft-toy-filling-200g/630191-1000?_br_psugg_q=soft+toy+stuffing

Keyring attachment (if using) – https://www.kydproducts.co.uk/40mm-spring-hook-with-25mm-splitring-nickel-plated

Darning needle to sew it all together

The buttons for the eyes and the beads were from my craft stash and I can’t remember where I bought them from.

I did tweak it as always! I made small crochet eyes by working below pattern (make 2)

  • Make a magic ring (MR)
  • 6sc into MR (6sts) – do not join to first stitch, carry on working in the round
  • Inc in each st x 6 (12sts)
  • SS, Fasten off (leaving a long piece of yarn for sewing onto the face)

Sew a small button onto the circle, then sew them onto body of owl.

Attach beads to keyring chain and attached to head.
