One of my friends at work has a daughter who is getting married this year and her bridal shower is in just a few weeks. She asked me to make her a tote bag, zipper pouch, and matching tissue holder as one of her gifts. Since her daughter is going to a tropical island somewhere (lucky duck!) for her honeymoon she wanted it to have a "beachy" feel. Her plan is to put a beach towel, some sunscreen, some spending money, and some flip-flops inside of the bag. What a cute gift idea!!!!
For the tote I gave it a boxed bottom so that it would hold more and I put a large pocket inside. I also made the handles a bit longer since she will have a large towel hanging out of it.
The zippered pouch has a matching yo-yo and covered button on it. I am so loving covered buttons, they are just too fun and a perfect way to customize your project! The yo-yo's are easy to do, my 7 year old even made one all by herself.
Then there is the tissue holder. I really like the way it turned out, it is just so stinkin' cute!
I hope she likes her gifts!
