To Do List Part.....errrmmm too many ;)

Well after all the excitement of the Christmas Swap (which I am still smiling from) I thought it would be good for me to get back to that notorious 'To Do list' and let you know what I've been up to. (Just wanted to say thanks for all your kind comments on my last post **hug**)

Back to the list, you may remember a few posts back where I had bought some gorgeous fat quarters of Japanese fabrics to make some more cosmetic pouches and purses. If not here is a pic of all the pieces cut out with co-ordinating zips.

As there are 5 sets I have decided to keep one set for each post so watch out for the others tomorrow and the rest of the week.

I love this fabric, it almost looks Christmassy to me, but then again anything that is red and green at the moment makes me get in the festive mood!! :0)
In each fabric I have made a large cosmetic pouch- great for keeping all your make up in and is even big enough to hold make up brushes too, a medium make up pouch- great for having in your hand bag with your essentials in there, and a coin purse- big enough to keep cash credit cards and even a set of keys or mobile phone.

As always my pouches and purses have contrasting fabric and zips, I do try to not give 2 pouches the same combination so it keep them individual.

And as I only bought a fat quarter these 3 babies are the only ones I've made. I like to keep them in limited numbers ensuring that they are in keeping with bagladee's ethos. The only thing left to do is add the charms to the zips and rhinestone detailing. I will be listing them on my website (not on Etsy this time- Sorry Etsians, if you are interested email or convo me and I will list on Etsy as a reserved listing especially for you :) just ask).

So ticking off the Christmas Swap and the new pouches, that left me free to make some pouches out of the fabric I had left from Elizabeth's Christmas Swap bag (I don't ever waste any fabric, its too precious to me), they look so cute with the little snow men on. I will try and get these into my Etsy Shop this week. I will post photos before I do. Plenty more on that 'To Do list' so I'm off to tackle some more.


  1. sooo pretty! I love the evergreen color! Reminds me of Christmas trees!

  2. these look lovely Emma, I love the fabrics. And your swap parcel was great, nice to see a pic of you too, and the scarf and hat do match your eyes perfectly!
    : )

  3. That is such pretty fabric - I love the one with the pale green zip. I am very tempted to pop to your shop, but then I still want to see the other sets too - what if I want them all?!! :)

  4. Those pouches look really cool. The fabric is great, and I love green. Can't wait to see how you use the rest of the fabric.
