Fun With Feathers


I love me some feathers. I think they are the perfect accessory in home decor, as well as fashion!



My latest project began when I found this precious canvas clutch at Hobby Lobby. It comes from a new line called "Me & My Bag". They have aprons, purses, tote bags, bibs, and more. And to sweeten the deal, they are all half off this week. I paid $2 for the clutch.....what a steal!




I decided to use some feathers to gussy it up and make it a real show stopper.
{If your initials are HSM, please avert your eyes because it may or may not be a birthday gift.}




To make it a bit more versatile, I decided to add a pin to the back instead of gluing the feathers right onto the clutch. This way it can be used as an embellishment on the bag or be taken off and worn as a brooch. You could also add a clip to the back and use it in your hair too!




I think the end result is wicked cute!




These quilted bags are from the same line that's half off.....both less than $5 after the discount. Be sure and come back tomorrow when I show you what I'm doing with these beauties!

CUTE! Looks like I need to get myself to HL!

I'm a new reader and I ADORE everything you've done. I think I spent like 3 hours yesterday reading your older posts. Found you on Google when searching birthday party ideas for my soon-to-be-one year old. And I'm so glad I did!

This is great! I have a little feather pin I found at a flea market for a dollar...unfortunately I realized I couldn't pull it off in my hair...pin on something else. Genius Amanda! ;)
