I have loved owls for many years now. There are over 200 species of owls that live in almost all regions of the Earth. Throughout history owls have featured significantly in mythology and folklore. Owls have been both revered and feared in many civilizations from ancient to recent times. In ancient Greece, owls were often seen as a sign of good fortune and that is how I view them.
About a year ago, my sister gave me an owl purse that was made in Thailand. I wanted to make a pattern and create my own version of such a purse. I think they turned out great. This first one I made for my sister and brought it to Toronto to give it to her. She loves the colour blue so that is what I used for her purse:
|This is a "sac" purse with a drawstring closing and cloth handles|
|Back of purse showing tail feather (with back zipper)|
|Pastel version (eyes are in felt)|
|Back of purse showing tail feather detail|
|Hunter green version|
|Back of purse with attached owl keychain detail.|
