It's a Bird! It's a Plane? It's a..

zipper topped bird shaped pouch sewn from a felted vest (whew! that was a bit of a wordy description for the birdy pouch). ;o)




The fun part about the wool vest that I felted was that the front panels were patterned while the back of the vest was plain. That gave me the ability to mix and match the body and wing on each side of the pouch. I machine stitched the wings in place and then used embroidery floss to blanket stitch around the wing for interest. This birdy pouch would be just the right size for carrying a few trinkets or even to be used as a pencil case.
