Lip Balm Holders - Testing

 
I have been playing, trying to make a "usable" lip balm holder.  Something that I can attach to my bag or keyring so that I am not always trying to find it down in the bottom of my bag
 
It took three attempts to get something that I was satisfied with ...
 
No 1:  Both the keyring and the strap was too wide for the holder, also the holder was a little snug
No 2:  Keyring better size, however strap was too long.  Also holder a little long
No 3:  This is nearly right - everything looks in proportion
 
I will make a few more and put them in my gift box - if anyone wants a tutorial for making these, just leave a comment, and I will take step by step photos when I make the next one.
 
I also completed one more breast cancer bag.  My co-ordinator stated that the hospital is slowing down on needing the bags (isn't that fantastic news), so we can slow down on the production line.  I will still continue to make them, as it is a great cause, and when I want to sew, I can just pick up one of these to make.
 
The fabric in this bag was purchased from the furnishing section of Spotlight.  I bought 1/2 metre and it is enough to make the outside of two bags ... I love it

    Forgot to ask, the tutorial would be the same as for the emery board covers? Could you give me the measurements of the lip balm covers please??? I think they would go nicely for the Camp Quality street stalls in Sydney.
