Boho Bird Pouch or How I "Organize" My Stash

I love this print by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda.
In fact I noticed that I must love it a lot~ and saw that I had some in a few different colorways from various recent shopping trips.* 

 I wasn't sure I wanted to add buttons in my usual way, stitched to the front, so I tied some on with the same varigated blue grey perle cotton floss that I used for the 'stitching around the birds' detail, and made a little zipper pull :)

  • *Apparently I like to keep new fabrics stacked in piles sorted by shopping excursions until...
  •  I've made a few projects with them, then they get put into small plastic boxes to keep them clean.
I only started doing this after attempting to keep track of inventory a few seasons back.
  • The older stash, I put in even bigger boxes on shelves. These mostly gets used for things I make for myself or prototypes etc....

Anyway, the new bag is now in the shop.
 This one was fun~I liked doing the hand stitching and adding little buttons...
Plans for more-maybe even bigger, and including a long strap?

That is adorable and I love the way you put the buttons on the zipper pull!

Everything you make has such a clean line to it. Does that make sense? Feminine and modern too. Goodness, I wish I had the words to convey what I meant!

You're right; that fabric is really cute.
