When not swapping, I'm currently plowing my way through my fabric/notions stash.  I've become a bit of an estate sale addict of late and I need to use stuff or my sewing cave is going to look like an episode of "Hoarders" soon.


I made this little bag out of some fabric scraps.  The branch is my first attempt at an applique.  I used some ultrabond paper backed fusible and a scrap of tan fabric.  The ultrabond says it's permanent as is without sewing. 

Isn't the owl sitting on the branch awesome?  I have a few of them.  They were on little cards saying "You'd be wise to check out our loans! XYZ Savings and Loan".  After years in a damp basement, I didn't trust Mr. Owl's adhesive anymore, so I glued him down with some fabric glue.

I'm pretty happy with it, but I wish I'd made the design lower on the flap and the whole thing BIGGER!!  I used a pattern from a purse book, and this is not a mom-sized bag.
