Vintage owl bag with macrame vibe

I made this today. I love how it turned out! I included a clothespin for scale. I intend to make more of these, and on the next try I’ll double up the yarn to see how much larger I can make it. My iPhone barely fits inside this one. I used a sew on snap for the first time ever with this. Why did I not try these sooner?!

That’s really fun! I love the character and the snap is smart.

This reminds me so much of my gran, she had the macrame owl key holder thing, you know? I love that funky vintage stuff. Nicely done, excited to see the bigger version.

This is sooooo cuuuuute! I can’t wait to see the larger one! A sew-on magnetic closure would work great for these, too!

I absolutely love this! It totally reminds me of an old wall hanging my grandmother used to have in her house. So adorable!

So cute! I love the frumpy expression. He or she looks displeased and/or intense. Intensely displeased? But the feathered chest says, “I’m so fancy.”

Very cute!
But never sewed on a snap before!?!?!?

Be fun if you could find/make a beak-shaped button and do a loop.
