So, long story short....
I purchased a gift card at Sephora for my sister and did not want to accept their ugly mirror gift box it came in.  After receive a few confused looks (like the ones I get when I don't ask for a plastic bag), the sales lady let me leave without the mirror compact.

Instead, I made some small chenilled gift pouches.  I already wrapped the one for my sister, so here are some mock-up photos with cards I had lying around. 

Without further a do...here they are:



There are four layers of fabric sewn together (three up and one down).  Then the fabric is carefully shredded and beaten up with a wire brush. 


Another picture with the zipper displayed for you.


Lastly, just to show you the colorful insides.  I always make the inside fabric contrast the outside and the zipper.


Smiley Please don't forget to vote for this as your favorite.  Thanks!!   Smiley
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years.  Many blessing in the new year.  Hope we all get to be as crafty as we want!

these are so great!
and so practical - can be used for any holiday (of gift giving that is) and can also be used as a coin purse - very cool.

(oh and i have been getting "look" for years about no plastic bags. it's easier when you make your own funky bag to carry purchases in. it becomes less about the plastic bag and more about your own bag! ha)

great idea, i'm sure your sis loved it!
