We live with woods behind our house and our young grandaughter was a little bit spooked by the sound of the owls at night. I started picking up cute owl-related items for her as our little inside joke and decided to create this bag as one of them. :) This owl would work as a pajama bag, small tote bag or (if you use insulated batting instead of cotton batting) a lunch bag. You can also omit the handle (leave the loops for ear tufts!) and stuff it with a small pillow form for use as a snuggle pillow for a child. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Basic sewing machine skills, a small amount of hand work. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approximately 9" x 11"
