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!
