Personalized Makeup Pouch

Finally getting back into the groove! My sewing machine is no longer collecting dust. Made this makeup pouch to hold some lipsticks for a beautiful friend in Minnesota. Friend, if you are reading this, its in the mail!! SURPRISE!!! 
I did some free hand embroidery on the Brother. I went over it several times with the accent thread. Who doesn't like Neon Orange!?!
Embroidered my signature inside, its cute and wee :)

Can you believe my photo box is still alive after all this time? Had to dust that off as well, but it still makes a great backdrop. All in all this is an adorable pattern from A Lemon Squeezy Home via UCreate. I will be using this one again!

Gift for Teacher!

Today is Brody's last day of Kindergarten!!! This was his teacher's first year, fresh out of college, and she was ah-mazing. I volunteered every week through this last half of the year and was able to experience her methods in class. She kept the children engaged and made everything fun, she has a long successful career ahead of her! So, I made a little something special for her, a Mini iPad Case from a pattern I purchased on Etsy. The Teacher's name is embroidered on the front and I gave Brody fabric crayons to sign his name on the inside flap. Hope she likes it!!

Feels good to be creative again! I think my sewing machine missed me :)
