One project was a long-range commitment for me. I designed and ordered some fabric through Spoonflower. I was able to purchase only one yard...perfect for my "needs."
Then I turned the fabric into some pretty little makeup bags for the beautiful girls in my life.
One for each of the daughters-in-law that is a nice square, traditional size. They're about 7 X 8, so they'll hold a nice bit of makeup without being too bulky for a purse or bag.
I love that the twist keeps the bag open and gives it a funky, fun look. Originally, I'd made one for Dusti and Alayna, but Jolie got some makeup from Santa, so I added her to my list and quickly made hers today.
In the end, this was a fun project. The fabric costs much more per yard ($17) but designing it was fun. I really wanted fabric that would tell them how beautiful they are. How better than to design fabric that literally says, "You are beautiful" in several ways?
