Last month I didnt take part cause I hadnt really done anthing.
Though what I am showing you today, I actually made in February.
One of my best friends invited me to her fiancé's birthday party and believe it or not he is one of my biggest fans. He loves everything I make.
So, of course I had to make something for him, but the question was: what?
First of all I never make things for guys and I dont have "manly" fabrics.
Well, isn't that an excellent excuse to go fabric shopping? ;-)
I went to a very nice shop not to far from where I live. It's called Frau Tulpe and I finally got some yummy Echino Nico there. I wanted it since I saw Krista's cute Scooter Bag. It was kind of pricy, but totally worth it.
I also found a big remnant piece of laminated fabric, which I wanna use for a diaper bag for a friend of mine and I got some ribbon. I LOVE ribbons and I love the Berlin skyline. It was the ribbon I had been waiting for to be made ;-) Made some key fobs with it already.
And then I had to decide what to make for my friend. I made him a toilet / wash bag (cosmetic bag does not sound fitting for a guy, I guess). Inside I used brown polka dot oil cloth that I also found at Frau Tulpe's.
I used this pattern. It was meant for knitting supplies and I altered the size to make it higher. The download is free. Sorry, it's only in German, but I have seen tons of similar tutorials on cosmetic bags in the WWW.
He absolutely loved it!!!
Yesterday, I was also productive. I made 3 of those cute fabric bowls for a friend, took pics of them at the party and then forgot my camera there :(
I'm gonna show you in a couple of days once I got my cam back.
I really hope that next month I have more to show.
