Introducing the tiniest Margo bag ever! It's six by seven and a half inches. The little owls are only about two and a half inches high. I was lucky to find the little owl charm for a zipper pull.
My DD loves owls and when I saw this fabric, I had to make her a bag -- she loves tiny bags, so I made it mini-sized. I got the owl pattern from a friend's magazine (thanks, Fran). It was an issue of Simple Quilts & Sewing from last fall. I sewed a fabric loop into the back seam of the second owl (I forgot or I would have had to make only one) and attached it to the bag with an old key chain loop.
Inside are scaled-down pockets. I halved all the measurements on the pattern to make this bag and added a bit of velcro to hold the small pocket closed for those things she wouldn't want spilling out of her purse.
I used my trusty Margo bag pattern from Lazy Girl Designs and a seven inch skirt zipper from my stash -- I wasn't sure the red would go but I like it. And it coordinates with the tiny owls.
