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
