a person who has no more room for stuff?
That's right, something useful and if it just so happens to be something pretty....... it's even better.
For my Mom's 70th birthday I made her a fold over bag to hold all of her medications..... mostly for when she travels or goes on little trips to Daytona.
I chose a pretty table runner than was in great shape. I trimmed the sides to make it more even, cut it in half and then sewed it right sides together and along the bottom. I "paper bagged" the bottom and made a lining out of a sweet reproduction print in pinks and blues.
I sewed in a white pony-tail holder in the center of the bag between the linen and the lining.
Then made a button to match the lining.
(I am presently taking donations for a manicure....)
Then sewed it to the bag being certain to mark the correct spot first with a mark-b-gone marker. I love those things!
I added a copy of "Dozen's of ways to Repurpose a Pillowcase" to the bag too. I fit perfectly!
I also added a "gift certificate" for a cheesecake made with Splenda for her trip to Daytona with my Aunt Rosemary.
I think she liked it!
