I spotted this quirky Frida Kahlo fabric at a craft fair and knew immediately just what I was going to do with it. A cosmetic bag and coin purse for my sister's birthday! I was lucky in finding coordinating lining, zippers and tassel.
A free video tutorial and pattern for the cosmetic bag on So Sew Easy helped make it an easier task. The coin purse video I found on Professor Pincushion; I confess I did wing it and made my own template to suit the size I wanted.
We went down to Sydney for my sister's birthday and her reaction when we gave her gifts was priceless. I am happy to say she loved her Frida cosmetic bag and coin purse.
No time to waste, as I am still working on scrapbook pages for our daughter's 21st birthday. In my previous blog post Dream Catcher, I showed some of the page elements I was thinking of doing. I can show you a section of that mixed media page which is turning out really dreamy and pretty. I cannot reveal any more than that as our daughter gets the blog's notifications.
Hopefully, she will enjoy flipping through her album when it is finished.
