With a friends birthday coming up recently, I was trying to think of a little something to make for her. She had been eyeing off one of my Clamshells (shop display) for a while so I decided to make her one. They are fully hand sewn, and don't take long. You only need some scraps of pellon and fabric for outer and lining. She is a 'black & white' gal, so I chose to fussy cut the birds from some scraps I had of the Modern Folkloric range. She was pretty happy with it. This one is the medium size.
I then decided to make myself one, the small one to put my thimble in. Of course I chose a bit of Bonnie and Camille fabric!
I am going to make another soon, as I have another friends Birthday coming up. She has been eyeing one now off too!
