So this weekend I went to two college graduation parties. One was for a girl I went to high school with who I haven't seen in a while, and the other was for my best friend! The girl I hadn't seen in a while I knew I should bring something with me to give to her - not that she'd think I should, just that I knew she'd appreciate it if I made something.
So I made her a little makeup bag.
I have like a yard and half of that fabric, and honestly I've been hoarding it. I love it. I never want it to leave, but it's such a small little bag. The zipper I had was only 7"!
My favorite part:
I remembered after that I had that ribbon, but still I thought it made a nice little pull.
Next up was a purse for me - I wanted to get more practice with the magnetic snaps, and try out a purse idea. I'm not sure I like the square bottom, I think I'll make the next one rounded, but I get to keep the prototype.
It's big enough for my wallet, etc and a knitting project. I wanted a smaller purse not like the giant ones I normally carry.
So, should I stick with the square bottom or go rounded? Opinions? (this will probably be a new purse type soon, I have to figure out how much fabric it takes me, etc)
And then I made another "Sandra Tote".
I'm planning on making a smaller version of the totes and calling it the "Tilly Tote" (hopefully reversible too!).
And since my best friend didn't walk (along with another of our friends) we did a mock graduation. It was really funny.
And I'll leave you with a picture of my cat napping in the dryer...
