My son’s girlfriend turned 18 4th July, and I knew I wanted to make her something. They’ve only recently got together, so I don’t know her that well yet, but I figured a toiletry bag would be OK. Checked with her mum for favourite colours (baby pink and white), found that those are in severe lack in my stash, but got this pieced together anyway. I had some leftover HSTs from a previous project. She was thrilled to bits, something that made me very happy.
The height was decided by the size of the HSTs, but in the end I found it could have been taller. I made a toothbrush pocket, but a grown-up size brush is too tall. Oops. I guess that’s the way it goes when I just sew and don’t plan properly in advance. But, as long as she is happy with it I am too. Next time I might take the time to think through the design before I make it though, because there will be more.
