What was your inspiration?
I have been on a bucket craze as of late! Happily hooking bucket after bucket. Pulling out my fabric scraps to match up each one. This looks so much better in person, but you get the idea. This is a modified version of a couple patterns I have been drooling over.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I found a lovely pattern from Crochet in Color! That's where I started. Great, easy pattern from Liz. For the Owl Bucket I used some Patons Jiffy I had in my stash in pink and tan.
Mine is quite a bit larger than Liz's, and I did line mine with the cutest owl fabric I had in my stash. You can also see my label tucked in the seam, and if you look really closely, you can see the little sterling silver "made with love" charm I apply to all my knitwear.
If I had to do it over again, I would use white and black for the eyes and make the beak bigger. I really like it just the same as it looks much better in person.
