We've had many exciting events this past year for our family. One was our younger sister graduating. For her graduation I made her this adorable little owl graduate. You can get the free pattern here, but you do need a login to the Lion Brand site, also free and worth it if you crochet often since they have good patterns.
I changed the colors to match her school and I also added a little rolled up piece of textured paper that I tied on with yarn as a diploma but I didn't seem to get a picture with it. I love this little guy and had a lot of fun making all his little parts - wings, webbed feet, eyes, cap, and one horned ear - and then figuring out how to put them all together. I don't know if she named him, but in my imagination his name is Eli.
