So my big sister has three owls and is owl mad. She also has a very busy Health and Safety job. So when I saw this fabric I thought she would love it and what better to make for her than a briefcase.

BTW my DH prompt named the fabric the 'scary owl' fabric when he say it - well it is kinda intense Smiley

Outside


Inside - with two deep pockets

Pretty simple bag really - jordy with a flap, double re-inforced for strength. It is big enought to hold 2 ringbinders end to end.

Oh and I used two of the swivel jess holders that she uses when handleing the owls for the handle attachments.

what d'ya think?  Grin

The briefcase looks fabulous. That fabric is a little intense, to be sure, but it really looks terrific! You did a great job.

Oh I love it, I think it is cool and I think the Owl's would ward off any would be thieves by saying "Don't touch this bag" or the wrath of the Owls will be upon you............ha ha ha I love it.

I LOVE this bag.  Where did you find the great "scary owl" fabric?

My Mom has an owl that lives in her Weeping Willow tree.  It has been there for years. 

Great work!  It is lovely!
