Little Girl Birthday Gift

My daughter made this darling owl cross stitch and we sewed it into a bookmark. (I made 5 of these book marks for book club as gifts.) The elastic goes around the book, then attaches to the button so the bookmark never falls out!

Then we made a cute cross-body purse out of matching fabric. These are my favorite to make. I've got to make me one :)

Fabric Bird Wall Art

I saw this post at "Like the Rain" and I had to make it! I wanted it for Valentine's Day so I put all my cute red/pink fabrics to use. I love it - it makes me happy to look at it! Did you know I love fabric!!
I bought my frame at the GW (of course). Isn't it a lovely picture! I dismantled it then roughed up all the edges. I tied some picture hanging wire in it and then hung the birds.
I cut the birds out of a cereal box and glued the fabric.
