Never Forget Bags

And so here’s another project I’ve been workin on since June: custom zippered makeup size bags as high school graduation gifts for my daughter and her friends!
Inspired by an adorable Amy Butler print with cutie elephant, I thought I’d sew up 18 bags as gifts! The theme was “Never Forget”, as the ol’ elephant never does! The bags are lined with a Kona Cotton in robins egg blue and bear custom embroidery “Never Forget
FLHS Class of 2012” done by amazing seamstress gal pal Kathy.


The last little finishing touch is the embellished zipper pulls: a variety of beads featuring lampwork elephant, glass peanuts and of course a pewter 2012 charm on a lobster claw clasp. Last is a little length of ribbon.
I just finished the last of these cuties,
It’s time to send em off with those college Frosh gals!

      was so fun to make these and with each bag I thought about the
      friend of T’s who would receive it and all the sweet memories the girls share!
      thank you for following me, Laura!
