Want an owl purse?

I drew a new pattern on Brian's past issue of a Rolling Stone magazine for a zip purse earlier and I'm happy with it. It's to do with owls..

The owl zip purse is made of a combination of felt and cotton, zip, thread and vintage brown buttons. The back of the purse shows the owl's black tail as shown below.

There are three similar owl zip purses. To celebrate my new pattern and share my passion for owls, I'm going to give and send them to the first three persons who like the purse and leave a comment in this post. The lucky three will have to pay it forward by making/giving gifts for the next three.

Q: Why can't I just give without the recipient having to do the same?

A: I'd chanced upon and left my first comment on Kwoozy's blog and subsequently got picked to receive her handmade gift. :)

I know 'pay-it-forward' can sound cliche to most people especially after the movie which I haven't watch before. But I believe in having the spirit of fun in giving (within my means & Rupiah-ed allowance, of course, kekeke..) especially in this wonderful craft-blog-world from which I'd gained so much.

I'll keep this offer open for as long as I get first 3 encouraging comments in this post from my visitors. I know I won't have the need to randomly pick as I've never had that many comments from experience. Should there be no takers for say until November, I'll put the purses up in Pass it On or other charity when I return to Singapore.

P.S. If you think you're the first 3 commentors and you're someone new to me, do leave me a way (e.g. blog / e-mail) to contact you, k? Thanks!

Thank you all for the lovely comments.
I'm truly thrilled that there
are people who like my owl purses. The 3 of them will be sent off as soon as they are packaged and stamped to the respective ladies:
