Making the Owl be there for you *Card Purse has been so exciting. I had seen a pattern on Pinterest for an owl motif quite some time ago and I had in mind that I might make my Mom an owl purse (she LOVES owls) but wasn’t really sure how to bring my idea to life.
The *Coin purses are a little smaller than this new shape to fit credit cards which makes things a little tricky when it comes to making motifs or designing magical scenes.
I’ve had my sister on my mind recently as she’s preparing for big life events and for some reason amongst all the mixed emotions, strangely, I recall a pair of pyjama’s she has with the “Owl be there for you” slogan on it. I suppose I’ve named this purse as a big sister extending the sentiment to her and looking at the purse the imagery is there too 🙂
All the owl references popping up combined with finding the last dregs of a fabric roll (with owl print on it- yay!) at a local craft shop – it was destiny and a ‘no brainer’. The doors have been opened to creating the hugging owl scene I had in mind.
I’ve used embroidery thread to stitch the tree branch and leaves. The owls are made with cotton and just to finish it off, I’ve added an owl button on the back 🙂
