I made this owl purse for my niece using different textures of yarn.  I started with the eyes by making a "magic" loop and building the iris.  I inserted plastic eyes and then crocheted an orb which I stuffed & then sewed to the iris.  The rest was pretty much off-the-cuff crochet.  I crocheted a kind of small tube for the purse and extended a flap over the top for his head & sewed the eyes to that.  I made a lip on the front of the purse & added fancy fur to give him a ruff.  Then I crocheted wings & a back with  open pattern work that becomes his tail.  He's not perfect, but I like his surly looks!
This is so cool.&nbsp; I love the creative use of stitches and yarns.&nbsp; The eyes are awesome.<br />
Thank you!&nbsp; After seeing all the other wonderful entries I felt kind of intimidated.&nbsp; Thanks for the ego boost!&nbsp; <br />
There are lots of wonderful entries but your owl is right up there with the best of them!<br />
Thanks, from you I consider that high praise!&nbsp; I voted for your bird!&nbsp; I hope you win!<br /> <br /> --Debi<br />
