On the Fifth Day of Christmas

Kristen gave to me...


No, it's not 5 golden rings, it's something much nicer...look!




Is this not beautiful?? It's a felted bag, with a lining and a zipper closure. Notice the little "snowball" zipper pull! (How the bag has no seams is a mystery to me.)
The front of the bag has three layers of fabric...a toile, a bit of old ticking, and a sweet, bird illustrated vintage shoe ad, printed on cotton. They are stacked and zig zagged onto the bag. I wish you could feel it. It's so touchable.

I LOVE it! I'm going to stow all my artsy bling in it for the trip to Slave Lake. Lucky me!

Kristen, you are a talented girl, and you have made me very happy. Thank you!
