I learned to make these from the November/December 1994 issue of Piecework. They were used by Japanese ladies to carry the picks for their koto (musical instrument I believe). Originally made of silk I used cottons.

These are so fun to make and I am thinking of new styles already. On flickr you can find many other ones and a tutorial to make them. The bird pins were made using shrink plastic and ordinary pins.
