Sleepy Owl Ipad Crochet Bag

I have been so busy these past weeks, I have a couple of patterns that need to be written and upload here so you can enjoy them.
Last Sunday was my daughter's birthday and I wanted to make something special for her other than baking her a cake. So I made her a bag for the Ipad she received. This bag was inspired by my owl headband I made a couple of weeks ago. I Hope you  enjoy this pattern.

 
 
 This Ipad bag is made to fit an Ipad with a cover case, it also has a fabric lining. The reason I used fabric is because I don't want the yarn to over stretch due to the weight of the ipad with the cover case.
Ok, here is the pattern...
 
Note: This pattern hasn't been tested. If you find any mistakes or problems with the pattern, feel free to contact me, I'll be glad to help you. You can use this pattern for your personal use, craft and other sales, but please do not share a copy of my work or claims as yours, instead share my page where they can find the pattern for free.
Thank you

The Cat in the Hat Crochet Pencil Topper

Next week across the U.S and DoDEA school here in Germany and many other countries will be celebrating Dr Seuss week. My kids love his books and of course I do too. One of my favorite book is The Cat in The Hat, probably because I have twins boys that remind me all the time about thing one and thing two. In honor of Dr. Seuss' Birthday, I have a few tutorials to share with you next week. So make sure you follow me either here or on facebook.
Today I have made a tutorial for a quick pencil topper that can be given as a gift for your kids friends or even teachers.

Materials
White and Red Sport weight yarn or worsted weight yarn
3.25mm/D Hook
Tapestry needle
Scissors
It is easy to work with the sport weight yarn rather than the worsted. The only difference in the finished product is that the worsted weight yarn hat comes out a little bigger. Here is a size by size photo which shows you the difference. The one on the left is smaller than the right.

Special Stitches
Back loop
Front loop
MC-Magic circle
sc2tog (decrease)
Special notes
For this pattern you DO NOT need to fasten off when changing color, you will be switching to the new color before joining with a sl st.
Here are some pictures showing you how to bring your yarn up and joining a new color

Headband
For the headband just follow the same instructions as the HK one http://crafterguilt.blogspot.com/2013/02/hello-kitty-crochet-headband.html, and do half pink half blue.
However, for this pattern  I used worsted weight yarn instead of sport weight. If using worsted weight yarn you only need to go until round 12 and finish off there. I did half pink, half blue but you can use any combination of colors as you like.

And if you don't want to make a sleepy owl, you can  always use buttons for eyes.

Ears (Make 2)
