I'm involved with a Breast Cancer Awareness swap and this is a makeup bag I made as an extra "goodie" for her.  I'm fairly pleased with it...but of course not 100% (gotta love perfectionists Tongue)

It's some BCA fabric with fleece underneath, then lined with some contrasting fabric and clear vinyl (that I used off of those plastic bags sheets come in, yay recycling!)

Outside:


Lining:

So any comments?

Very cute and a great idea!  Our bowling association does a fund raiser for Breast Cancer Research every year in February and this would be a great idea for prizes for the highest contributors.  Thanks for the inspiration!

That looks really good.  I wish I had some of that fabric to make my mom some things with; she should start chemo in about a month... I really like the the way it looks with the green fabric too, and horray for your recycling!  It can be cleaned easier.  Great work.

It's adorable.  You are like awareness queen- breast cancer and recycling.  Very socially conscious.  I love it inside and out. Smiley
Where did you find a bca swap?  I'd be interested in doing one.

What a loverly idea and indeed bag :-D  I had no idea you could get BCA type material, my friend is doing a Pink Party in a few weeks to raise money for Cancer Research and was asking for donations to raffle, I said I'd make a bag and purse for it and now I'm totally have to see if I can find some similar material to use!!

I have tons of pink ribbon fabric.  So, if you have any trouble finding any let me know.  I'll happily send you some.
