I made one without the handle. Then of course, it needed decoration. Since owls have been all the rage and I can't seem to shake them either, that's what got made for the bag. When I was thinking about if I wanted to sew it or hot glue it, I thought "Why not make it functional?" So I made the little owl into a pin. Now our neighbor's wife can pin it on her bag, or her coat or a wreath or wherever she chooses.
