I leave on Monday to visit my daughter In Pittsburgh. I thought a new travel bag was in order and found a great piece of vintage drapery fabric with an interesting tree design on it. I could resist filling the trees with little raw appliqued birds. The bag has a top zipper closure and is fully lined with lots of pockets for the trip. The large rough mother of pearl buttons pick up the colors of the bag and the birds. Now I'm ready to go!
