Bye, bye birdies

Now here is a quick gift idea I can share with you. I made these seven writing compendiums up for my work colleagues yesterday. I bought the felt folder which included a pad of lined paper, built in pencil case and another useful pocket from an office supplies shop. I used felt and Heat'n'Bond to fuse on this sweet birdie design that I saw on a skaters bag. I embellished with free motion machine stitching and some beads. These gifts were well received last night at our Christmas function which was held at a waterfront restaurant on a deck overlooking the Bay. We saw fish and stingrays swimming around below us just metres from our table, it was a lovely evening for outdoor dining and the food was superb! So sorry to tell you I forgot to take my camera.
