I've started working on a fun and special project for a loyal customer of mine who has recently been diagnosed with Breast Cancer. She begins her chemotherapy sessions soon, and she wanted a new bag in which to carry her things to the hospital. She had a special Aunt who recently passed away and who also loved birds. As a special request, she asked if I would applique a little birdie under the flap of the bag so that she could look at it and remember. And of course, the bag should have a pink theme! Here's a sneak peek at the little bird; I just finished it last night, and will put the bag together today. I think she came out adorably!
I found the pattern for this bird in the super sweet book: "Little Birds," put out by the Design Collective. The whole book is fabulous and inspiring; I highly reccommend it! The designer of the bird that I chose is Anita Peluso, and you can find her work here: http://www.bloominworkshop.com/
