First we had the Gingerbread Gift Card Holder, then the Bunny Pockets, and now I present to you these Crochet Owl Pockets!! This adorable owl has a little pouch that is crocheted right into the pattern and is perfect for holding gift cards, money, candy, treats or trinkets, small note pads & pens, business cards, and much more!
If you have a graduate in the house, you could crochet the owl in school colors and put a gift card or money inside. Maybe even crochet a mini graduation cap to go over the owl ear.

I had so much fun at The Crochet Crowd Mystery Event yesterday. It happened to be located on a ranch in Arizona so I was able to drive over for the day! I got to meet so many wonderful crocheters in our community and they helped me pattern test these pocket owls. It was an added bonus to be able to spend time with Mikey from The Crochet Crowd and Tiffany from Daisy Farm Crafts!
