    PARROTS eye bow tuck

    I made this just because someone said they would kill for a bird purse....
    now lets see who will kill for it,,really... lol
    the first picture is the front.. second is the back and the 3rd is the inside...
    I cut the fabric in two pieces and added the piping ...
    such fun to make this one !

    You found gorgeous fabric to make that out of. If I knew any parrot people, I would send them to you. They would take that off your hands in a sec. Great job and I love how you fussy cut the bottom panel!

    Ingenious. I love it!!! I have to do one for my cousin that is a peacock and yours gives me inspiration.... I just love making Bow Tucks, and had not thought of piping. In Target yesterday a lady who entered the store in front of me had one and I practically chased her down and tackled her to comment on it. It was a very pretty floral, but yours is what I like - unusual. Great for summer vacations and cruises.
