owls, totes and a tutorial

yay! i finally finished my newest tutorial. it is a sweet owl tote bag created from a store bought canvas tote and lots of fantastic mayarts ribbon. this is my second entry into their design team challenge and i have loved working on this project. they will be posting the finalists soon for voting, so hopefully you guys can help me out a bit - i will keep you updated:)

i love looking at things different ways, so even though these suede leaves come in the form of ribbon, i couldn't help but see them as feathers. with that in mind, i was fixated on making a feathery owl. summer break is quickly on the horizon and i know i will be taking my munchkins to the library quite often, so what better thing to make than a fun library tote. don't need another tote? this owl could easily be applied to an apron or even used as a wall hanging.

  1. the owl works very well as a library bag, since it is the symbol of Athena, goddess of wisdom.

  2. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [27 May 02:15am GMT]. Thanks, Maria

  3. If you don't get on that team something is VERY wrong. I have a good friend on the May Arts team (Jen Shears). When the time comes to vote be sure to let me know. I'll be all over it!


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
