Let's Make Up!

 Hello friends
Today's project complements yesterday's cosmetic bag - it is a make up brush holder.
Here is the inside.
I created these projects for Spellbinders®  and they have just appeared in the latest
edition of Crafts 'n Things in the USA.
Below is the full instructions from the magazine. The entire make up
brush case is made from felt and the dies I used are Grand Labels Eleven and
Jewel Flowers and Flourishes.  My little trusty sewing machine was used. 




The sickly ones here are doing okay, having some sunshine really helps.
Mitchell sends his love and thanks for cards and messages - 
he just didn't want to be left out did he!
Take care friends - I will be back soon.

Hi Christine,a great project again~ I can see that I'm going to have to get my sewing machine out (that's if it still works, it's so long since I used it!!). Hope you all have a relaxing day in the sunshine on your lovely lawn. Take care xxx

Toni said...

Hello Christine, I love both of these projects and would love to have a go at them but haven't got a sewing machine. Maybe I can hand sew them as long as I try and keep the stitching neat and tidy. Definitely food for thought. So pretty.
Hope all well at home today.

Hi Christine - not only cards (and tags!!) well done you. Love how you incorporate your dies into your sewing. I think I'll have to fit in a visit to Ikea... your lovely bags will make great gifts. Good to hear the boys are on the mend daily.
