The introduction to Amy's Kotori (little bird) zipper pouch pattern in Zakka Handmades, mentioned it may be hard to sew only one.
Boy, was she right!
and led to me sewing 6 more.
I'm not sure if it's because of the cute patchwork wings,
the pretty buttons for the eyes,
the lovely linen for the body,
the chance to use my stash of 4" and 5" zippers
(which I only have in the colours green or pink ;o),
the fun it is to give them ribbon tail feathers,
or that they are quick and simple to make.
Whatever the reason, I couldn't resist sewing a little flock of adorable Kotori pouches!
Once these have flown away to their new owners, I may have to sew another flock.
At least Amy warned me. ;o)
|Each Kotori has scrappy pieced wings - no two are alike! Such a fun way to show off precious bits of fabric. ;o)|
P.S. With some encouragement, I've decided to add my lovely flock of Kotori pouches to the scrap challenge for December being hosted by my friend, Maria of Maja's Paradis.
