ITH Owl zipped purse




You will need three pieces of fabric, approx 8cm x 15cm, 30cm x 15 cm and 20cm x 15cmplus a small piece for the wings. Choose your own thread colours to suit your fabric.



Hoop stabiliser and stitch colour 1 which is an outline and marks the placement for the zip.

Lay the fastened zip along the central line so that the teeth are on the line, the open end to the left you and all metal parts beyond the edges of the outline. (That is vital - you will need a zip longer than you think!)

Colour 2 will stitch the zip to the stabiliser.

Lay the smallest piece of fabric, face down over the zip and the long edge along the top of the hoop. Colour 3 will stitch it to the zip. Flip the lower part of the fabric up to reveal the zip.

Repeat this process with the largest piece of fabric and colour 4.

Lay a piece of contrast fabric over the lower part of the body for the wings.

Colours 5 will stitch it down.

Trim away excess fabric.

Colour 6 completes the applique.

Colours 7, 8 and 9 stitch the features.

Un-zip the zip halfway at this stage or you will be stuck later!

Finally put the loop in position and place third piece of fabric face down over the whole thing and stitch the final outline. (I actually used a double layer as the back for extra "body") Cut out about 5mm away from the edge, remove the stabiliser from over the zip and turn through.

Enjoy!

What size hoop is everyone making these on? It's too big for a 5 by 7 right?

Also what size zipper is best?

May I ask what type of stabilizer you use on this project, and if you add any type of batting? Thanks!

spendlove by spendlove 19 Jun 2012

I use tear away stabiliser. I use wadding or interlining if the fabric is thin but not if I use upholstery fabric. The choice is yours.

lrichardson by lrichardson 12 Apr 2012

I also see what you see first. I was thinking that there may be a way to make it a bikini purse. I bet Sue can figure that out for us. She is my inspiration.

This is really cute. It is kinda of cool that owls are coming back in fashion again. I remember when you saw them everywhere in the 70's. Everyone one thinks their creations are new and fresh. If they only could look back in time would they ever be surprised. I guess getting older has it's advantages.
