Owl Coin Purse

Project Description

What are you most proud of? This was my first chance to use the blanket stitch on my sewing machine, and my new-found basic embroidery "skills." I was surprised to see the pattern had darts--- but they give it a nice shape.

What you will need

  • Pattern from michellepatterns.com Scrap fabric
  • velcro

Q&A with SunnyB

MichellePattern asked:
Maybe I'm stretching it here, but the fabric combination for your owl is perfect. The eyes look like glowing moons and the blue is perfect for night sky.
SunnyB answered:
Thanks so much, Michelle! I do like the outer fabrics but ended up disappointed in the lining. It is a muslin I had hand-painted with pale blue swaths in a fabric painting class. I should have taken more care when I cut it to show more of the blue. Ah, well, live and learn. I will definitely make more of these!
