Winging Kit

11” and 13” Bird Cases

Clever 11” and 13” bird cases are beautifully finished and fully lined with a back zipper opening. Perfect for storing most mini irons, it’s a great way to transport yours to and from workshops. Constructed with fusible foam and weighted feet for body and stability, they can hold mini irons, sewing tools, children’s collections or whichever treasures you like. Two sizes included, these crested birds are a delightful gift for a friend, a child or even yourself.


“Karen, we met at a quilt show in 2014, & you asked me to share a photo when I finished the Muchas Poochas quilt. It was a joy to work on! I hand embroidered the details. I love your artwork, the animals have so much life!”
