I based this bird a day bag on the tutorial on curbly.com. I had this project saved "to do" from a while back and now I had the chance to get it done. I bought nothing for this project I had everything already including the really cool liner fabric.
Here are all the pieces ready to be sewn and glued together.
I almost forgot the handles! I cut them from an old shopping bag. I liked them because they were made with metal grommets. (I knew there was a reason to save all the stuff I do.) The original tute uses store bought handles.
Glued and "clamped"and...
...with the sewn liner.
Glued and drying
All finished - sans decoration.
The bird silhouettes appear once again.
Close-up - Cutting out all the bird related words from the destroyed dictionary was, by far, the most tedious part of this project.
