One more down...many many more to go!!

As promised, I am posting my sisters finished Christmas gifts. Hopefully she will not read this. Generally she doesn't unless I want her to see something. So, I made her this bag. As well as a smaller version of this, to be used as a makeup bag. Then I had to make a matching tissue cozy, of course! Here they are, drum roll please......



Both sides of the bag. It is reversible, but only one side has a pocket.



The Makeup case, and tissue cover.



A close up of the covered button, and loop closure.


I love the covered button!! I also used a hair band for the loop closure, instead of the ribbon the instructions called for. I really like to used these as closures for things such as crayon rolls. They are much less of a headache. What I mean is A)Kids can open and close themselves, B) Kids are not constantly asking you to tie their crayon roll they keep undoing...over and over again! Just makes life that much more easy peasy!! Hopefully you all won't get too tired of me sharing my goodies. I just get so excited. Luckily our families live and hour and a half away or I would be gift giving early :0) Now I have one gift completely done. Off to finish some more. I will be posting again tomorrow. Hopefully with several more finished goods. Goodnight!
