Bird mania continues, here at Rainbow Hare!
I’ve finished this organiser for my daughter’s birthday. She’s at uni and has a small room so I hope this will be easy to hang on her wall. I sized the pockets to take A4 sized papers, a pencil case and odds and ends and notes can be pegged onto the line between the birds.
I’m very pleased with how the organiser itself has turned out but I’m regretting using that stripped background fabric with the printed fabrics on the birds. I had intended to use a pale grey solid background and I wish I’d either done that or made birds from brighter or darker fabrics so they’d pop a bit more. Next time I should go with my instincts, rather than ploughing on into the night and thinking it’ll look ok in daylight!

Love those birds:) Great project – so happy!
Well done! What a great gift you created!
It's still really lovely. =) I hate second guessing myself. Live and learn.
Birdmania! I love it! :)
It's lovely Janine I am sure your daughter will be delighted with it and happy with your fabric choices even if you are not so sure of them.

Oh this is so sweet!
Hey, love it!
Okay I was very confused at first, I couldn't figure out how that would organize your birds…wow a not thinking moment. It makes a fantastic organizer though, lol. Thanks so much for sharing!
Sweet organizer – how adorable that she can put papers and bits into the line between the birds – nice touch :D I like that background fabric – I think it's fun! Now – is it just me, or does Music Birdy look like she has a secret she wants to share, but knows she shouldn't??!! She has that LOOK about her!
OOPS I forgot … this week I've been working on the last of the little Halloween bits and pieces I was making for the neighbour kids (the ones I know). Felt masks, more felt finger puppets, and today, 2 fabric baskets (based on Pink Penguin's basket tutorial) – tomorrow I need to finish stitching 5 puppets together and then I can start putting together the gift bags :) I'm looking forward to getting back to working on Christmas stuff – I just remembered today that I have to get a stocking put together so my sewy friend can embroider the recipient's name on the cuff – I forgot all about it, oops!
Ohhhh I like what you did! It looks wonderful.
Very sweet! Lisa had hardly any wall space so i used to send her fabric postcards – figured she could use them as coasters if nothing else! (not that students use coasters, but handy to mop up drips and spills
I love this! It is so lovely and bright and cheerful. I like the backing fabric you've used, it's like a soft spearmint sweety. Lovely!!
It all looks lovely a good idea.
That would also be a cute idea for a crib/lap quilt for a small child. :)
Hi Janine! This is so beautiful and your idea to make this bird quilt as a organizer is just perfect! Great details! x Teje
It is lovely Janine. I'm sure your daughter will appreciate it. Even if the fabric choices were not your first ones it looks beautiful.
It's beautiful, Janine!! What a great idea! It will brighten up her room immensely.
That's a really fun idea…I love the usefulness and it's really pretty!
