I got a Singer Basic sewing machine for Christmas and the first thing I made with it was this owl note / coupon holder.  I didn't use a pattern and I tried to use mostly fabric I had on hand.  He has button eyes and his "claws" are tiny wooden clothes pins glued on with Sobo fabric glue.  His pouch is just big enough for a pack of post-it notes.  The project took me about 2 1/2 hours to complete.  He's crooked in places and the hand sewn parts are a little uneven, but I these imperfections give him a lot of character.  I've got him hanging on my wall next to the front door so I'll notice the notes or coupons he's holding when I'm on my way out.  Cute and functional!

OMG that is freaking awesome!  I love him!

He is adorable.  I love the feet/coupon/note holders.  Oh how I miss Dunkin Donuts coffee...  Cry
