I needed an excuse to make this gorgeous pattern from the Hat and I. . . and Amelia needed a dance bag. I’ve learned my lesson from Zoe’s bag and used cotton this time. Zoe’s bag is sagging so much I think I’m going to go back and redo the handles and add a cotton lining.

G Hook (furls) for the Hexagons
H Hook (furls) for slip stitching the hexagons together

Owl Tote’em from The Hat and I.
I followed the pattern pretty closely with the following changes:
On the second or third round of the hexagons, I looped through the back of the owl ears so they didn’t stick out.
I sewed all the way around the eyes so they were attached more securely.
I’m not sure what I did wrong with starting the hexagons but the owls are a more slanted than they should be.
