    I needed something to hold my bantam and duck, so I just had to make a Bird Purse. An old leather purse was used for for this project, also with some pieces of deer leather, and thread. I cut the lining out and cut the zipper in half. Followed by sewing the zipper ends down so the zipper doesn't fall off. Pieces of leather were sewed over the zipper ends so the zipper end wouldn't cut the bird. The bottom was lined with plastic and tape to prevent poo leaking through, I will use paper towels on the bottom though. Then the top edge was lined with leather(where the zipper was cut away). A small piece of leather was glued and sewed where the bird's breast will rub. A piece of leather was sewed to the zipper strap so when it is closed I can fold it in for looks and extra comfort for the bird. Every piece of leather that I sewed on was sewn by hand, by me.

    After I move I'll show all the Nebraskans! [​IMG]


    If I took it to Elloree it would just be WEIRD. They are creepy people there, that's why we're moving. BUT, I will show my good neighbor and EVERYONE at church. [​IMG]
