New Design Earth Wise Owl

I finished the Earth Wise Owl Clutch with Handle last night. It's so cute!

This bag was a lot of fun to design. It has a wide, flat bottom so it conveniently stands on its own. There is a smart and environmentally friendly owl made from upcycled materials - wool, buttons, cotton fabric, floss on the front. Earth wise owl is holding our planet on his wing.

There is a vertical handle on the back with lots of topstitching in brown and black threads to resemble tree bark. This handle makes the bag super easy to carry. Just slide your hand all the way through and now it's hands-free.

If you want to see more photos, this bag is listed on Etsy and includes additional design details. What do you think?

Next on the design board is a wristlet bag for teacher! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Hi Donna,
    What a cute clutch! Clutches are my favorite bags to make-though they are small they seem to have so much personality!
    A very Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
