pink present





I have a dear friend who just had a birthday yesterday.  I wanted to make her something special, but sometimes that means I over think things.  So, in the end, I just went with a color scheme. Pink! I made two potholders with this tutorial, one glasses case, and some note cards using my Photoshop Elements and some digital scrapbooking images.  

At one time my friend and I both bought this Amy Butler fabric at the quilt shop here and even then I think it was sold out most everywhere because it was from one of her first lines.  I finally cut mine up last year when I made this purse - it's the pink and brown one.  So I used some of that fabric on the scraps for the pot holders I gave her.  She told me that she still hasn't found the perfect project for her fabric yet.  I do that too - I have a hard time finding the perfect project for some fabrics, especially when you know you can't get any more of it!  It's like gold. Well,  happy birthday friend and good luck in finding the perfect project for your fabric!

I am the LUCKY recipient of such a beautiful gift!!!

It's funny 10 years ago if you asked me if I liked pink I would have said 'no'... but I look though my closet and my craft room and fabric stash and there is pink everywhere!! I love it !!! I guess I had been denying my inner "pinky" he he he hee.... I am going to find a project for that fabric.. it doesn't deserve to just sit around... maybe another messenger bag, we'll see...
Thank you again! Hand made gifts are the BEST when you are a crafter you truly appreciate all the time and effort and creative energy that goes into stuff!! I'm so lucky to have you!
