Kate Spade Owl Bag

See more pictures and info about the Kate Spade bag on my blog.

Material Notes

My mom has all these extra fabrics and scraps because she used to have her own sewing business and I thought it was awful that these leather, suede, and snakeskin scrappies were sitting around so I had to show them some love. You could make any animal you choose besides an owl, I thought this would be a nice technique to show to see what other people make! I ONLY used the tiniest scraps that I found that I thought could be made into NOTHING else. I found the perfect colors to make a different version of the Sherwood Owl bag by Kate Spade. Leather, suede, snakeskin scraps and an old bag… some buttons :)

    Very nice! There is a market stall I visit a lot which sells bags just like this. I can’t wait to have a go at making one now :)

    Thank you Stacie for the tutorial. It was outstanding. I’ve made owls for years, both sewn and knitted, for my family and friends, but never thought of making the petals the way you did – and from leather scraps. Your craftiness is fantastic.

    I agree. I like your bag better than Kate Spade’s. Your dog likes it too.
