I literally haven't made a bag in years, but I saw an awesome photo of birds sitting on power lines, and in my head it became floral and embroidered, and then there really wasn't any way it could be anything but a bag. Some hours later, this baby was born. I'm in love with the concept, but pink's not really my colour. But I'll definitely make myself one with little green or grey birds  Cheesy

It's made from raw black denim, lined with floral cotton. The little birds are appliqued on in the same cotton, and the lines are embroidered in a pale pink. The strap and the little fastening tag are lined too.

It's smaller than it looks - my dressform is just midgety! It's a perfect everyday size - roomy, but not too big.







Hope you enjoy!

It's not what you know, but what you do with what you know that is important.
