I made this tote for a friend of mine who moved to Phillie this past year. She is a bird lover and I hope she can get a lot of use out of this bag! I wanted it to have a zipper so she can keep things safe if she is traveling while using it. I used this pattern and found the bird fabric at Treadle (sorry I spelled it wrong last time I posted it) in St. Paul. It is Joel Dewberry.
I added a little bird detail to the top by cutting out one of the birds from the fabric design and appliqueing it to the corner.
