I think you already understand that I love owls. So after Owls Blanket and Owl coaster I had to make the owls’ purse. I tried to imagine it for a long time bit all in vain.  I want it be not funny but really cute. And after many attempts I got my Owl purse “Blue Dreams”. Want to share with you the pattern and hope you will like the result!
