♪♫ Happy birthday ♥ ANNA ♥ ♫♪

My niece's favorite color is orange. The only "orange-y" fabrics I have in my stash would be felt and an old t-shirt I'm saving for a boy's quilt.
But, I had acquired from my mom a bit of vintage fabric:

Somewhere, I believe, there is a mid-'60's snapshot of my sisters & me in matching short/top outfits from this fabric made by our grandma. She must have gotten quite a bit of it, because I remember cushion covers & quilt squares from it.

I found pink "fur" to make a phone pouch & beaded a yellow/orange handle,

embroidered her name,

and even "singed" up a flower to match...
