Hootie the Owl

I majorly jumped on the everything owl bandwagon last year.  I think they are so cute, and I love all of the different varieties that can be found.  We are currently renting our home for a year, and even though we've lived here for 6 months, we haven't put anything on the walls (I know, I know, but decorating has never been a skill of mine, and the thought of having to fill nail holes and touch up with paint is seriously not appealing).

BUT...we will hopefully be buying our forever home this summer, and I have big dreams for my daugher's room.  Big dreams that include many, many owls.  She will only be one, so this is that window where I will get to decorate for her.  I know in only a couple of years she will have definite opinions about her room, and it will, of course, be her decision what gets put on her walls, but I am extremely excited about decorating her room when we move.  I have already started making plans for all the cute little owls, and in all of the different forms they will take.

With that in mind, I couldn't resist making Hootie the Owl.  Isn't she just so cute.  And with a simple change of yarn color, Hootie would the become a boy!  My fingers are already itching to crochet another Hootie (or 10 for that matter).  I think she would look fabulous in brighter colors.  What do you think? 

Also, I made up this pattern, and I'm thinking it might need to be written down and shared.  Any thoughts??
