I already posted this in the "Projects from Stitch & Bitch", but since it's not knitted I thought I'd post it here too. I made this for my bro's fiance for christmas since the hat I made for her last year inspired her to start knitting.

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 & questions welcome!

I like that a lot.  I love how it looks all 'sketchy'

I read your manifestos and strange religious tracts.  You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.
