Necktie Owl Coin Purse
I don't have a digital camera, so I just laid this on my scanner. Little coin purse made with four necktie pieces. Wings and interior are Save our Children designs. Two vintage pearl button eyes. I still need to add a clasp, and perhaps some yellow thread to accentuate the beak. I was just playing around and this is what developed. This was intended as a gift, but it's not to the level of perfection that I require when gifting. The trouble with neckties, is that if a pin catches at all, the fabric easily snags and sends a diagonal run across the entire section. Grrr. It's still fun to try new things though. And the fact that I'm experimenting without the crutch of a pattern is a step in the right direction.
