I bought some adorable owl fabric a couple of weeks ago at JoAnn Fabric. I am loving owls right now - I think we are going to have an owl birthday party for a 2-year -old in a couple of months. After making a little skirt for my daughter, I had quite a bit of fabric left over and decided to try making a purse for me. I used this tutorial at Little Birdie Secrets for the basic idea, but I figured out a way to line the bag and made fabric straps instead of using bamboo handles. The bag isn't perfect, but I had a lot of fun putting it together and have already gotten some nice compliments on it. Plus, the fabric makes me smile when I look at it!
