I was looking through so many pictures of small little purses especially the ones with the Japanese appliqué.. so decided to try my hand in it...but at the end after quilting and making the purse, I was too lazy to add any appliqué!! I drew the templates..I made two sizes..just to see how it look and which size I like the best!!! I also made a round purse.. For this project, there is a fair amount of handwork involved like stitching the binding, zipper and the side of the purse ( I blanket stitched the sides).
I stuffed the owl with cotton and also added a lot of stone pebbles for the weight. As it is a door stopper, it has to be heavy. I supposed you can also fill it up with beans instead of cotton and pebbles... whatever fancy you!!!
