Custom order: bridal shower

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!



  1. These turned out FANTASTIC!! What a great fabric you chose. I *heart* covered buttons. I've never dabbled in the yoyos; it looks adorable on the zipper pouch. And having a cold would be so much more bearable if you're pulling tissues from that cute tissue holder!

  2. looks FAB!!!!! I am sure she will LOVE it!
