This is part of the travel set I made my sister for her birthday. Which was last July. I finally handed this over for the second time on Friday. The first time I gave it to her was labor day weekend but I had to take it back to fix a couple things.
I'd given her part one the week of her birthday. That was the first version of the earring wallet made from the same plastic needle point canvas as the box and meant to fit inside it. But the same day I handed her the box she gave me back the earring wallet because the hook earrings would not stay put. I had to comepletely rething the concept and start over and the result doesn't even fit in this box. She has decided to use it for make up instead of jewelry.
Now she is asking me if I can install some plastic loops on the lid to hold mascarra pencils and I sad no problem. Hope it won't take me another month. :)
The clasp is what I forgot to install the first time and my original concept didn't work and I had to rethink it. What I settled on was sewing a button on the bottom and attaching elastic loops to the front edge of the lid and the top edge of the polar bear picture which is opposit the front edge of the lid. Not shown in these pictures is the vinal pocket on the back of the polar bear picture.
It took me an hour to prep the pictures for the box and there are more pictures for the earring wallet so I'm going save those for another post later this week. I just don't have it in me to prep the pics and write about them. I'm still read-a-thon hungover. Six hours of sleep after forty awake was not nearly half enough. To be sure I would sleep again at a fairly decent hour tonight in spite of waking up at one I denied myself all caffeine and even my perscription Adderal today.
You can see pictures of it as a work-in-progress here.
