Phoebe Bag

I am entering the Owl Bag for a challenge over at
Scrapy Land
 http://www.scrapyland-blog.com/2016/06/scrapy-land-challenge-43.html

I found the Phoebe Bag pattern on pinterest.

Used it for both bags but adjusted the top part for the owl bag.



















Denim fabric used for both made a denim flower with a button center for the 1st bag.
The owl bag was made of denim as well.
I used the tab closure pattern to make the "feathers" and Doodlebugs ribbon to attach it to the bag.
Eyes cut from felt with Spellbinder circle dies buttons also from Doodlebugs.
Backstitched eyelashes with yellow DMC
Velcro
