I’ve pretty much purged all the star-pattern-stuff-making out of my system. There were a few more ideas I came up with, but I’ll save them for another time when I actually am interested in them again.
I did manage to make one more thing, a coin-purse(not really)-tiny-makeup-little-bag thing. Or something.
I lined it with a basic star lining.
I added a grommet and loop, so it hooks right onto the fob in my bag.
It’s too small to hold my cell phone or iPod, not sealed tight enough to hold change, BUT it does hold the few personal essentials I like to keep with me. So hey!
Though I really like the idea, and will use it, I’m not really thrilled with how it turned out. I took pictures planning on doing a tutorial, but we’re just going to skip it today. It’s the snaps, I think. I should have done a zipper. And maybe bigger. And, well, dang it.
Also, I totally love the vintage dusty rose corduroy I used for the outside, but yeah, the small pink star very quickly started to look like this to me
And then that’s all I could see. Every single time I look at it, this:
and let’s not worry about how long I spent making that incredible piece of Photoshop mastery right there.
So with that, my friends, I’m out. The hubs and I are dropping off the kids with Grandma and running away to Mexico for a week-long cruise in celebration of ten years of wedded awesomeness.
I may have a phantom post for you all next week, assuming I get my [bikini] bottom in gear and put one together in the next hour or so, but it will just be a Blogger illusion. I plan to be nowhere near a computer or sewing machine for the next ten days or so.
See you when I have a tan!
