Flying a kite is one of those happy childhood pleasures that never goes out of style. My children love to fly their kites each year when the weather warms up and the breezes carry the tails away until only a speck can be seen against the clear blue sky. It's almost magical to watch them soar.
Recently, some friends and I did a little handmade gift exchange, and I made them each a pretty kite sachet. It's basically 2 layers of muslin, cut in a diamond shape, with bits of old laces and trims sewn on the front side, collage style. Ribbon tails in the softest shades are streaming from the bottom tip.
