Happy Birthday Melanie

About two weeks ago, my fabulous friend Mary sent me a link to some FREE Amy Butler patterns. Three of my favorite words in one sentence; Amy and Butler and FREE!!! As a creator of paper goods, I feel in love with the stationery portfolio and decided to sew one of these do dads for my friend Melanie for her 32nd birthday. She had just become a Mrs. the previous weekend and expressed an interest in some new paper products that displayed her new name. So, after a good read of my sewing machine manual, some six short years after its purchase, I was blessed to create a portfolio that was worthy of mailing. Thanks to Mary for that bit of advice...I hate to read directions/instructions!!!

I found the fabric at Ikea on a weekend trip to Baltimore and I was inspired to create the "bird on branch" design from the pattern on the fabric. I was happy with how it turned much that EVERYONE is getting one of these stationery portfolios for Christmas!
