Hello friends...I hope you had a lovely Labor Day holiday. Mine was great, the weather was perfect and as my homage to the occasion...I labored. I found this beautiful bird fabric in a local fabric shop and fell in love with the gorgeous colors and whimsical designs. If you follow me on Facebook or here on my blog, you know I love my birds.
I decided to create a bird bag series...colorful zippers, ribbon pulls and beautiful linings.
You can click on the photo's for a closer look at the fabric.
I added just a touch of freestyle stitching to the front of each pouch for a little extra detail.
I even nested some beautiful birds in with the linings. I love opening the bag to get a pretty fabric surprise. The little touches make the difference.
Aren't the colors striking? They measure about 7 1/2 inches x 8 inches and have plenty of room for special treasures.
They all have a 2 1/2 inch flat bottom so they will stand on their own.
The front and back on each bag is of a different color and bird...like two bags in one!
And I love my new tags that Sasha of Tags and Labels on Etsy made for me. The Empty Nest on one side...
and my name on the other. I like that I can use them this way or fold them as a loop and sew them on.
So yes...I labored...a lot.. on Labored Day and enjoyed every minute of it.
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
