Owl Crochet Purse

June 20, 2017

I’m kind of obsessed with owls, so I thought it’d be fun to make a cute owl purse for my girls. It was so easy and turned out so cute. Quick, easy, and cute… my favorite kind of project! Plus, I was able to use it as a stash buster so… BONUS! I added the colors I used (it was all from my stash), but any color scheme would work.
