I've said it before, but in my case an old saying "shoemaker's children are often shoeless" is so true. My sister complains (and for a good reason, really) that I should wear more of my own designs, to get a conversation started and "then you could slip them your beautiful business card". Thanks sis, that reminded me of an another problem, the cards (still missing).
I found this pretty-reused-striped-sturdy-cotton while thrifting some weeks ago. The piece wasn't quite large enough for a bag (it was a small-ish pillow cover) but the colors were just lovely. I pieced it for a few pouches and some keyfobs and needle felted the birds. And liked it even more. Then and there I decided that this set will be mine.
And because it's only for me, should it lack some details?
Definitely not. The following has no connection to a certain brand or their products, but I think the set is perfect because I'm worth it. The cutest birdie-set ever, so me, (and a great conversation starter too, I'm off to hunt the business cards soon, do not worry sis!), mission accomplished.
Happy new week soon!
