The Future's So Bright

I had to make shades

The girls at Sew-Ichigo have come up with a super cute pattern again.
I couldn't wait to make these adorable sunglasses.


But what shall I make with this cute piece?
I know, I'll make a gift for my granddaughter's birthday.
So I fused some Pellon Vinyl Fuse to a coordinating piece of fabric for the lining.

Then I incorporated Lindsey's vinyl zipper pocket idea to make a waterproof pocket for the inside...

add Anna's open wide zipper application...

and some Briar Rose on the back...

and I have a zippered clutch.

Our granddaughter just celebrated her eleventh birthday and she also got braces this summer. I made her this purse so she has something cute and waterproof to take her toothbrush to school. Now there should not be any excuses why she's forgotten to brush her teeth after lunch.

This pouch measures approximately 6"x12".

So cute. I won some vinyl fuse and am looking for a way to use it.

What a great idea for her - I was always losing my braces!

How perfect! She will thank you one day when her dazzling smile starts winning the boys!

This is a great and cute pouch~ She would have clean and nice teeth after good clean ups. S used to wear braces, but her teeth brush was stored in a plastic zippered bag. I wasn't very creative at all.. :)

I love that pattern and you have done such a great job of it. She could put her shades in there with the toothbrush too.

I'm laughing so much, there's a mobile phone network here, Orange, who had ads that ran for years with the tag line 'The future's bright, the future's Orange' :oD

Fab wee gift though, hope it does the trick!
