A couple of Owl Sewing Projects

I have a couple of sewing projects to share with you all today.  You know I love owls, so I am sure it is no surprise that I would be using my new sewing machine to make owl projects, lol.  They are not perfect, but I am pleased with them since I have only been sewing a short while now.

First, I made this owl pin cushion.  I found a video with instructions for this on the DIY network page.
Next, I decided to try my hand at a purse and found the cutest owl fabric at Hobby Lobby.  I couldn't find a pattern for a purse exactly like I wanted, so I kind of winged this.  It is similar to a hobo bag. 
Earlier this week, my sister took me to a fabric outlet in Tennessee, and I got these little iron on patches that say Created by, so I put one of those inside the purse on the liner part.
