This is the gift for Annmarie that I alluded to recently, but had somehow managed to not photograph before giving it to her. I ordered the fabric from Hancock's of Paducah and used the pattern from the first Stitch n' Bitch book. It's a pretty simple set of instructions, but the one difficult part is cutting the fabric squarely. Luckily, it doesn't matter a whole lot with this project, and it can be easily fudged and not noticed. After all, how can you take your eyes away from those adorable birds to check the straightness of the edges? I am actually a little jealous, as this is way cuter than the fabric I used for my own needle roll a few years ago.
Thanks Annmarie for taking photos!
