Last year I made a "Basic Cable" hat for my brother's fiance for christmas and I guess it inspired her to learn how to knit. Now she's knitting socks and everything! So, this year I wanted to give her something knitting related cause I'm all about feeding people's addictions  Wink

The bird & branch were "free stitched" on my sewing machine. i just drew out the design with tailors chalk and went to town with my quilting foot. The inside fabrics are both vintage from thrift stores.

outside



for scale



inside open



flap down



all rolled up!



I hope she gets lots of use out of it. I worked for about 5 hours straight on it yesterday!

Comments welcome & appreciated!

Liz
