Scrappy owl bag

todays project
Originally uploaded by nanotchka
I've been working on a pattern for a bag that is the size and shape that I like. I didn't want to spend the time just making the bag out of muslin with nothing to show at the end.

I started with pieces of home dec fabrics that were sample cuts from a local wholesale supplier. I've been obcessed with birds lately and decided to come up with an owl design that would work on the bag. I couldn't spend much time on it so it had to be simple but fun. I just did some free cutting of my fabrics and made a simple owl pattern and quickly rough edged the applique to the bag front.

After spending the afternoon sewing, un-picking, sewing, un -picking over and over again. I came close to what I wanted. It still needs some tweeking but I'm getting close.

Let me know what you think. I'll be having a fun giveaway on Nov. l5th so stay tuned. I'm going to start posting on my blog at least everyother day starting the 15th. There will be giveaways, tutorials and lots of new projects in the months ahead.
