I finally finished my black bird purse. The finishing touch was done with some black bias tape I found thrifting today for $.25. Yay!
So let's do the run down on materials: thrifted linen skirt for the exterior, thrifted polka dot interior, old house coat fabric for the pockets, 2 zippers that were thrifted and shortened, and the $.25 bias tape for the top edging and handles. The only thing that is new is the interfacing.
It's all about the birdie love this summer. And whoa! what a summer. Fourth of July already? I'm leaving tomorrow to head to the parents to be joined by Jeff parents for a good ol' crab boil with pasta, steaks on the grill, corn on the cob, and homemade ice cream. Yummy! Then over to Lancaster PA for a few days to enjoy fireworks and "the biggest outdoor market" ever (so says the husband). I can't wait. Enjoy your holiday weekend!
PS. Jeff restored all my bookmarks (there were lost in the Great Blue Screening on June 2oth) so I can finally catch up on reading everyone! I am going to need another day added to this week.
