owl bag

Something a little different today . . .
~ Ü ~

We'll be going off for a few days soon, and we always need baggies for packing little stuff. So, I decided to make a cute one just for fun. I'll be entering this for the challenges over at Make My Monday (autumn - flora & fauna inchies), Fashionable Stamping Challenges (anything but a card), Kaboodle Doodles (squares/inchies), Charisma Cardz (in stitches) and CES Challenge Blog (Forever Autumn).

The stamping leaves much to be desired, but what's done is done. I'll need to redeem myself  when I finally get all the cotton stuffing out of my head. I used several shades of brown for the leaves and made the inchies from felt. It is then layered onto a darker piece of felt, and stitched in place.

The cute little owl is a Dustin Pike freebie. I traced the image and stitched the outline, and added a branch for it to sit on. I actually had to google autumn animals, and owls appeared a number of times.

Thanks for stopping by!
