Alison's Make-up Bag

  • Just a simple little made-up make-up bag

Lined with a layer of muslin and a layer of clear vinyl.  (It's hard to sew with vinyl, by the way).  And umbrellas for the girl who loves rain.  :)

Fabric from Cherry Lane Textiles

Inside the bag she found...

  • a yellow lace headband (available HERE)
  • a funky little binders board ornament (that I may or may not have made last year and then forgotten to send to her--heh heh)

The ribbon just so happens to match the ribbon that the zipper pull on the make-up pouch is made from.  Go figure.
  • a sweet little zipper pouch

I love how this one turned out.  I love the little hearts on the tag.  I love the colors.  I love the funky brown zipper.  I love the pink lining.  I just love everything about it.

  • a pair of earrings made by yours truly and mounted the same way as THESE ones

This pair makes me think of little raspberries.  Little jewel raspberries.  Lucky for Alison I don't have pierced ears anymore.  Otherwise these might not have made it into her present.  ;)

It's kind of a random little hodge podge of things, but I think they're all things that will make her happy.  :)

P.S.  Is that how you spell it?  "Hodge podge?"
