I couldn’t resist trying out a project from Sew & Stow, so I started out with the make up roll.
Let me say, the picture in the book is deceiving – the finished project is much smaller than what the photo depicts (and the illustration that goes with the instructions doesn’t even look like the finished project). Even though I could tell that the cutting measurements given in the directions were going to be small, I went ahead and made it anyway. Here’s what my finished product looked like:
It’s cute, but I’m afraid it’s not going to be too useful for most people – it’s just too small – although, I intend on putting this in my swap package anyway. Since it is so small, I decided to add a few other goodies to this gift as well:
So instead of just a make-up roll, I made two lavender scented sachets and a restful eye pillow. I thought she might be able to use it as a ‘pampering gift’ to someone special.
On a different note, thanks to everyone who left comments in the Christmas panel giveaway. According to the random number generator the winner is…. Rachael. She wrote:
I want to sew some soft baby puppets for my baby who will be pretty new to the world at Christmas!
