the secret revealed

A bit of confession first:
There was this yummy charm pack of sunkissed I couldn't decide what to use for.
On the one hand, I love the fabrics. I wanted them the instant I saw them, and when I got them I would bring them out from time to time just to look at them. (Yes, I realize how silly it sounds).
On the other hand, the bright, bold colours (especially the pink) are way outside my comfort zone. I was afraid of using them in something I was unsure of and ending up with something I would not like so much.
And then:
I saw some lovely pouches and purses in the Pretty {little} Pouch Swap, and found this great tutorial .
And that was it. Here is the result:

(This tutorial helped me with the pocket.

Oh, and it looked like the Birthday Girl liked it :)


  1. That is so fabulous! If you decide you don't like it you can send it to me LOL!

  2. This is lovely, what a nice gift! I do that too with charm packs, I love them but get sort of stuck about how I will use them so just take them out and look at them.

  3. Beautiful - I love the fabrics you've chosen.

  4. Oh, it's gorgeous! And I love the zipper pull!

  5. This is very sweet, I bet your friend loved it.
