I had to quick whip up a couple of these the other night for a set of birthday girls. My cousin's daughters both have August birthdays, so we usually get to celebrate with them when they come to visit their Grandma.
Gotta love a zippered pouch. I had great visions of something patchwork, but when it came down to it, I was running late on time and just used this cute doodle fabric that I think is really perfect for girls who aren't so little anymore (hey, they're almost tweens!).
I think it'll be a nice pouch that should last them a while at least until they move on to their next favorite thing. Perfect for a little stash of lip gloss or whatever they want to tote around.
The only difference between the two pouches is the zipper color, I didn't want to make them so different that they'd fight over one or the other, but different enough so they could tell who's whos.
So lemonade lip gloss, a pouch, and a fun little banana leaf recycled notebook we picked up at Target = fun and functional birthday present in a hurry.
