I made this for my Aunt for her Valentine's Wedding Anniversary (27 yrs!!). She's been traveling for work, so I wanted to give her something pretty to have on the road.

It's Ruby-red velvet (her July birthstone) with red and gold ribbon, and Asian dragon print inside. I quilted all the layers together in a diamond pattern, and hand-sewed the lining in by the zipper.

Think it'll be durable and last as long as her marriage?  Cheesy




Thanks for looking! Comments?

Wow! The whole thing goes so perfectly and luxuriously together! Gorgeous bag! Most cosmetic bags have such feeling of "OK, I have to travel, so this is just temporary" - but this one absolutelly doesn't!
