JD Aviary Almond Sparrows Wallet

Yes!!  It’s done, packaged and mailed!  My break can officially start now.

This is the wallet.  I wanted a sparrow right at the front by the snap closure, but the way the fabric is printed, I couldn’t find a place where I could do that and not have one upside down somewhere else!  So I used a swath of fabric with no sparrows and appliqued one on exactly where I wanted it.

I love how it came out!  I also added a couple sparrows to the bag.  Here’s one…

I had a great mail day today.  I received this book all the way from Japan:

Yes, it is in Japanese, but it has really clear diagrams.  The doll is about 15″ tall and the book includes the pattern to make her and about 20 outfits ranging from panties & pjs to casual wear to a fancy party dress.  My plan is to make 3 of these dolls for my girls for Christmas.

But first, we will celebrate the 4th of July and I will spend part of the day sewing some skirts for my oldest before she goes to Gramma’s and day camp next week.

Enjoy the holiday and stay safe!!  Leave the fireworks to the pros. 🙂

  1. Great bag and wallet! I love the birds. I have the sketchbook design from Anna Maria Horner and just got some birds from the Erin McMorris line from pinkbypost – my new favorite fabric shop – and have been wondering what to do with them. A purse and wallet are a great idea.
