The pink zipper was bought with a bag for Brianne in mind, since she actually admired my own pink poinsettia one I first made about 5 or more years ago, and said, "You should make me one." This is the daughter that does not like quilts. I sent her a photo of this fabric, asking if she'd like a quilt out of it, but nope. When I said maybe a makeup bag? she said yes. The ivory zipper was bought with a jacket for myself in mind, but with the zipper tabs I have come to know and love, it was easily cut down to size for Dayna's bag. Dayna loves quilts. They 'migrate' to her house on a regular basis, most often in the winter when she thinks they are lonely all by themselves while we are in Florida. I like that serendipity struck again, when I realized that the zipper plackets almost lined up for the face and hair sections of the heads! However, the hair is not specific to the head it's perched on but you'd never know that unless I pointed it out.
To one "bag lady"
Think it's a thank you for the bag I made her this summer. What a great card!
This is the third quilted makeup bag I've made each daughter! They each got a Pyramid Pouch, and several years ago a little bag with handles from Quilts 'n More magazine.
