While looking through the boxes of odds 'n ends my Aunt Dolly gave me, I came across various laces, buttons, beads, sequins, and ribbons. The wheels in my brain started turning and the ribbons started twirling. I tatted a butterfly and started playing with arranging things on a piece of black fabric. Here's what I ended up with! A unique creation all my own! I then went on to make a simple bag, using Pellon Peltex - which gives my bag great shape. I also made a matching zipper pouch for my make-up. Inside I added an attached zipper pouch to keep small things from falling out of the openings in the bag. On the straps, I added batting & gross-grain ribbon to make them sturdy. I love having all the doodads from my Aunt's sewing box. She's no longer with us, but I have wonderful memories of sewing with her and this bag keeps those memories close to my heart!
