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.

This pattern is available as an inexpensive, clearly formatted, PDF instant download HERE in my Etsy shop.

        1. Now I. Doing hood unicorn scarf with pockets , when it says fold and sew back together with school does this mean folding short end and leaving long ends open, so you have 2 ends to meet and see,. Thank you, as you see in easily confused so please excuse and be patient with my quedtions

  1. Thank you I see now why. Almost done with it . love it for my great granddaughter 13 years old. Doing lots of owl projects

  2. I’m doing good unicorn scarf with pockets. I’m not sure how you mean fold in half and see back together with sc does this mean fold in half long ways leaving 2 short end to be put together to make hood. Thank you Judy

    1. The hood and the scarf are made separately and then sewn together. If you are working on the scarf then fold the short ends to make pockets. Then sew the edges together.
      For the hood, lay the rectangle so the rows are going horizontal, then fold from left to right sewing along row 1.

      1. Working on hood. Not sure tho how to fold it to be a hood . laying flat I fold top down to each corner of row one, is this what you mean. Sorry, I’m 76 years old and sometimes not sure.. But love crocheting and especially your patterns. Thank you again

  3. Finally figured it out. Thinking scarf would go all the way around and I would need all 60 stitches for it. Thanks for your patience.

  4. This is adorable! my daughter is having an owl birthday party for her 5th birthday… I am going to make 5 of these for the “give aways” instead of loot bags for her friends! thanks for the free pattern!
    (Of course i will fill them with candy too)
