Nugget the Lil' Owl



Nugget the Lil' Owl,
 
This owl is part of the Lil' Trouble Teddy series. An entire series of tiny animals plus a tree for them to hide in. You'll find all the pattern links at the bottom of this page. All the patterns are free.
There's nothing spectacular about this owl, it's really basic but cute.
I designed the owl for it to sit on top of  Lil' Oak the Hiding Tree. Nugget is a whole 2 inches tall!




The Lil' Trouble Teddy and Nugget the Lil' Owl are quick to make. They're a great little

Sly the Lil' Fox




Sly the Lil' Fox,

This fox is a member of the Lil' Trouble Teddies (you'll find pattern links to the series at the bottom of this page). The only difference being his tail and the addition of color on his ears. I made him his own pattern page so you don't have to flip back and forth. There is a video that follows the written pattern of the head and body row by row. The 2nd part of the video was made before I created this Lil' Fox so his tail is not in it, however, if you need it, in the 2nd video you will find how to make the arms and legs, how to do the ears, how to add in yarn eyes and also how to sew it all together.

The Lil' Trouble Teddy is quick to make. They're a great little project to bring along to a doctor's apt or anywhere you'll be stuck waiting for a bit. If you're worried,

Lil' Oak ~ The Hiding Tree


Lil' Oak ~ The Hiding Tree,

I designed this tree to go with my latest free patterns, Lil' Trouble Teddy and the Tiny Squirrel. The tree can hide 4 little bears and squirrels inside, then pull on the strings and close up the top of the tree. All the little friends are safe and sound inside!
I also designed pouches in the leaves that will hold the little bears and squirrel in, like a nest, they can sit up in the tree and look around. If you use brown for that part it will look like a nest!

Ace is actually a member of the Lil' Trouble Teddy gang, the only difference is the head shape and the tail. Aside from those two things the pattern is the same.

The Journey Of A Little Tree And Visitors From The Forest

Happy Friday!

I've been busy getting the next pattern series ready for you but I decided to play a bit more with the tree before publishing a pattern. I've always wanted to crochet a little tree but I really want to make a pattern that is not only fun to make but super fun to play with!

I started out with a pretty plain tree, short with nothing really going for it aside from the ruffled green parts. It could hold 3 of the tiny amigurumi bears inside, (pattern to come). See the introduction of it here.

It was cute enough but I thought it needed to be just a bit taller. It also needed a knot hole, one that its visitors can look through. Maybe the branches could hold a tiny friend, like an owl.  I managed that last night. It stands so great on its own, it doesn't flop over even when filled with up with visitors! I went to sleep pretty happy, I posted this on my facebook page last night before I went to sleep;
The little bear went inside her tree for she was now very tired. She told the frog, the koala and the owl that they could sleep in her tree too if they wanted to, there was room for them all! The koala and frog said thank you to the bear and climbed up into the tree. The owl preferred to stay out on the branch for the night, she was not tired. The owl promised to watch over them while they slept. She said, "Goodnight my friends"

Today I was looking it over and decided it needed some bark. It was still a bit too plain.
Oh yes, that's much better! I believe that it's done now. The pattern can
