My best friend's daughter, M, turned 19 this March and I wanted to do something a bit fun. Yes, I know I'm a bit late doing this post, more on that later.
I sewed up this zip bag (got the idea from one of my favourite blogs, Noodlehead. She has a great tutorial on how to make different sizes. I made a matching tissue holder. Thought this would be a good 'set' for travelling considering M was going to France this summer.
Oh and I put in my favourite Gin into the bag for a giggle. I was asked if it was from London and I said yes, but I purchased it at the LBS (liquor board store for those not in SK)!
I love the photo of my daughter and Monique - they are so sweet together.
Of course they are personalized...I wouldn't want her mum pinching her bag and tissue holder!
Which brings me to the gift I gave to her mum a few days later. Guess it's just the right size for make-up brushes! I lined this one with remnants of her napkin gift given last year.
The fabric are spare pieces from the quilt I made from my bed, from Prairie Chicks in Hague (soon to be Warman, which my pocketbook is dreading as it's much closer to my house.)
