Birds of a feather

You may remember when I made this red train case for Angela, and told you she would be sending me a purse in return?
Feast your eyes!
I sent her the fabric, which was vintage, and she did this AMAZING job lining up the bird pattern perfectly among the three seams of the purse!
She lined the purse with soft, pretty fabric.
Even the bottom panel is completely gorgeous!
She also included a pair cute socks that she knitted just for me!  Sometimes you can find purses like this -- along with quilts, pillows, and other great hand made stuff, in Angela's Etsy shop.

All comments for the next month are entries in my 800 posts/4 year anniversary of my Etsy shop giveaway!

I'm so glad you like your purse! It was such a joy to get to trade with you! My train case is waiting to get put in a special spot in my sewing room at the new house, I think I will use it to hold my laces and trims... Seems fitting, don't you think?! Love and hugs to you! :o)
