Birds of a Feather: Coordinating Bags and Accessories

These adorable ITH projects create a whimsical ensemble you will enjoy carrying or gifting.

Anyone out there fond of owls? Be the envy of your friends or create these projects in the hoop and coordinate them for a thoughtful gift.

A popular medium for machine embroidery, cork makes a statement. The fabric is natural, durable, washable, and fashionable. You can purchase cork in lots of pretty colors and even lovely prints. That makes it a perfect choice for stitching purses, bags and wallets like these.

The Two-Panel Owl Shoulder Bag from Inspiration Mutz finishes with no visible raw edges. Purse panels are appliqued and quilted in the hoop. Cork is coordinated with fabric, adding a natural accent that rivals designer bags.

Cork makes a neutral palette for Cork Purse with Owl Applique, also from Inspiration Mutz. Bright colors in the applique fabrics are matched with vibrant zippers.

The bags are completely lined and finished in just one hooping.

Coordinate fabrics and make a matching ITH Owl Keyring from Inspiration Mutz.
