I'm a noob to crafster. I stumbled upon it a little over a month ago and found the contest to crochet a cozy. I'm thinking about redecorating my kitchen with owls, so I crocheted a cozy for my very old toaster. I completely improvised on the design. No pattern. I was inspired by the vinyl sticker at amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Cute-Owl-Branch-Vinyl-Decal/dp/B004B49AUM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307400169&sr=8-1 and I modified the leaf pattern available here: http://www.thefabledneedle.com/index.php?main_page=freebies
I haven't posted 10 times in the forum, so I'm not allowed to post pictures yet Here are links...
It was fun, and I can't wait to see what everyone else created!
