Yes, I made another one.  It happened so fast.

One minute I was choosing fabric scraps that suited her favorite Anna Maria Horner print...

this time, she loves AMH

and before I knew it I had only to buy thread in the right color for the top-stitching.

checking off another Gift!

This Christmas gift is for a friend that happens to looooove Anna Maria Horner. She chose the large scale "Clippings" print from Loulouthi, which I used as the makeup roll outer fabric. Turns out other Anna Maria Horner scraps mixed in quite well! And she's going to get a kick out of those chickens for sure!

a happy little home

So nice to check off another gift!  I almost couldn't wait to give it when I got to see my friend yesterday.  I guess I'm week on the delayed gift-giving gratification, just like my mom.  Somehow, I managed to hold out.

At this point I have just one more gift to make.... and lots and lots of wrapping to do. Sometimes I love wrapping, when I'm in the right mood.  So, I've been waiting for that to happen.  Hmm....

If you should wish to give your makeup or that of your friend a happy little home, there's still time to make your own version of my makeup roll pattern before the big day. Good thing this one's downloadable, eh?

Happy handmade holiday crafting!
