The sun has been shining for 2 whole days now!  Hooray!

The toes have been painted (no pics you’ll be pleased to hear) and no.1 daughter working on her tan in the garden!  It is exam season afterall!

My daughter had requested a ‘makeup bag style’ pouch for her (super artistic) friend’s birthday. After much deliberation over fabrics and design, we came up with this:

Chloe's makeup pouch

I don’t do minimalist, so keeping this one to the ‘simple and modern’ brief was a challenge.

The Italian wool I was using was also a challenge, quite the diva in fact!  So there was nothing for it but to quilt it to within an inch of its life!

I did veer slightly from the original brief, but I’m really pleased with how this roomy pouch turned out and so was my big girl!

And some of you will be pleased to hear that I am now on Instagram: #justjudebelfast

Please be patient as I haven’t quite figured out how to use IG with a new phone I haven’t quite figured out how to use!!
