My big sister dropped this owl fabric off yesterday and told me that she needed a bag to send to her great granddaughter in Australia by the end of the week. As little sisters always do as they are told, I came up with this. I digitised an applique owl in a similar style to those on the fabric to decorate the pocket. The bag was made almost entirely in the hoop - I just needed to stitch across the bottom corners and stitch the last seam in the lining. I hope I get brownie points when she comes back on Friday!

Beautiful. Love the colours so bright and cheerful. We are in Spring in Australia now and this is just perfect for a day like today Sun is shining.
The little girl who will get it will love it.
Good job with your Talents for digitizing and making and for your sisters choice of fabric.
Well done both of you.

I'm a little sister too, and I don't remember always doing what my sister ordered. But then, I don't have your digitizing skills. Great job!
