Start to Finish

Last week I continued to "avoid" the larger projects on my list, choosing some more little projects that can be started and finished in a relatively short time.

A number of weeks back my mum surprised me with a little pack of fat quarters she had ordered from a television shopping channel.

Last week I decided they might make cute little cosmetic purses and whipped up a bunch for my mum to gift to her friends.

I find production line sewing a bit tedious normally, so avoid repetition fatigue I varied the designs a little on each one.  I like some better than others, but mum seems to think her friends will like them, so that'll do nicely.

I also snuck in a quick frame purse for myself made up in this lovely Bonnie and Camille fabric - Marmalade on the outside and Scrumptious to line it.

It will replace this tired little box that normally holds my make-up and I think my dresser is looking better already.

I have some more avoidance tactics from the weekend to show you tomorrow when I take pics, but I think that maybe this week I will have to behave myself and get back to that FAL list!


  1. Wow! These are sooooo cute! Love your mum's choice of fabrics too! Your vanity box is crying out to be recovered in some B&C!! Jxo

  2. Yes, those are lovely make up purses, with great variety in the detailing! Very fresh and pretty. Nice looking box though, I think you will re- purpose it somehow!

  3. I am sure Mum`s friends will be delighted with the purses, very pretty. I managed to get lots of fat quarters from hobbycraft, they were doing their packs for £6.50, the same as a certain craft channel were doing for £9.99 plus extra ones too, now to decide what to do with them!

  4. I bet your mum was thrilled with the pouches. And I love your make up purse!

  5. Love the little cosmetic pouches, really nice idea for presents xx

  6. Sometimes it's nice to get some quick and easy finishes done before diving into more complex projects! Great wee pouches, and glad you have some satisfied recipients :o)

  7. Those are so sweet :-) Love the fabric and love the unusual shape of those bags.
