Tonight I am going to South Carolina. I figured that this is the last "Spring Break" I will have ever so I might as well enjoy it. And my friends, Zeke and Shannon, live in Charleston SC and invited me to stay with them, and I am not one to pass up a free place to stay and a good time. So off I go for a whole week to relax and have fun with my old friends.
Shannon is always saying nice things about the things I make so I decided to make her a little something for letting me stay with them, and also because her birthday was earlier this week. It is the same pattern as the one I made last week, I love that pattern, it's so cute. I couldn't find any fabric that matched the purple. I tried to bleach/ distress a scrap of the purple a while ago so there would be some contrast, but it didn't seem to fit, so to jazz it up I added some white pipping. I also realized once it was done that the polka dots on the top aren't angled like the ones on the bottom and I think that makes the two pieces of fabric, although they are the same, look a little different. I wish I could say I planned that but it was just a happy accident.
Part of me wishes I had made it like a wristlet, with a strap. Maybe next time! I hope Shannon likes it (and didn't read this post before I got there, like I told her to!) I realized that we have no wrapping paper/ tissue paper that doesn't have snowmen or Santas on it so I made this little pouch out of parchment paper. Pretty cute huh?
Check out all the other finishes at Amy's blog, they are all excellent!
