My Aunt's b'day (2moro) and i have always tried to gift handmade presents. This time after putting in lot of thought. I decided to make something she would use more frequently.

She visits a lot of temples hence decided to make a wallet/pouch kind of thing which would store the 'prasad' given at temples. I know these are more indian terms but couldn't help using them as i had to actually explain what this wallet is all about.

Next one is not so complex, a simple cosmetic bag using the tutorial provided in craftster. This is my 3rd bag of this type, so was quite easy, though i feel i could have done better while placing handle sockets. (Pivot at seam near zipper still continues to baffle me...hopefully i shall fix it in next bag). The challenge for this bag was use of vinyl (i didn't have special needles to sew vinyl)

Hope she likes them.

Comments welcome.

they came out really nicely! I always have a problem with vinyl, perhaps because I'm too lazy to actually buy a needle.
