I wanted to make some little bags to keep tampons, etc in, for 'that time', so I came up with these!

The one on the left is a roll (like a painter's roll - geddit?!), with pockets for tampons and pads, and the one on the right is a little bag, for non-applicator ones, with a press-stud fastening for the ribbon, to fasten to my new hand-made bag's loop, so i can always find them!

The little bag is made from an old skirt, lined with sari material, and a hook and eye fastening, with a decorative button - it looks wonky in the picture, but it's not - I promise! There is a press-stud fastening the ribbon (it was meant to be an eyelet,  but I picked up the wrong snaps - d'oh!!)

The tampon roll is made from an old skirt and pair of jeans, and is stitched with bright pink zigzag stitching.

Sorry for the dodgy pics - knew I should have asked my friend to take them!

C & C's welcome as always - thanks for looking!!  Grin

I'm not currently employed, so it's kinda my job to mix the things up!

Love the combo of the dark denim and the deep pink. Well executed, everything looks so snug in their compartments.
