Pattern Description:

Hooty-Patooty and Owly Oops bags are usually the most popular item in my booth at craft shows.

My granddaughters love owls. I resisted owls as long as I could until finally I had to give in and join the band wagon of owl fans. My little granddaughters love owls as much as I love making purses...and I do love making purses! My sweet 7 year old granddaughter and I have made a couple of purses together and she loves it. She helps me with the fabric choices and with the applique and I do the zippers. Recently she said with a sigh and a smile, "What am I going to do with all of my purses?" Can you have too many?

It has been a great bonding experience working with her sewing. I get more smiles and hugs from her and she begs to come to "Nana's" And she certainly checks the sewing room to see what projects are on my table.

Hooty Patooty and Owly Oop are her favorites.

The applique technique is as simple as cut out, glue down (glue stick) and straight stitch the edge on the machine. The project works up quickly and is quite charming...her favorite! the hardest part of the project is picking out the fabrics...and that was fun!

Now, that is complete and time is we pop for more fun time in the sewing studio!
