I consider Audrey Hepburn one of the most beautiful women in the world. When asked to share her beauty tips she expressed these thoughts:
"For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.
Ricci and I got together to work on this new pattern designed by Amy Butler called "Stash and Dash Bags". When I saw them on Kim's site last week I knew I had to make them.
I don't think I've put a zipper in for many years. All that quilting with not a zipper in sight! It was good to go back and review a few sewing skills.
I think the finished product turned out well. I even used Kim's idea to put rick rack on the zipper to use as a pull.
Ricci made hers out of some fabric she had left over from a quilt. For a zipper pull she used a very cute metal bird house. So many possibilities! We're excited to make a few more of these. The pattern comes in three sizes: A Toiletry bag (Large), a Make up bag (Medium) and a Coin Purse (small),
