I ploughed straight in... no pattern, no thought and several hours later I came up with this. Okay... pretty enough I suppose (despite a wobbly edge) but about half the size she had specified and rather lumpy in places! Oh bother I thought...
So yesterday, while my class were busy with their rusty fabric and gold embroidery I started on version two. This time I thought about it and made a pattern... and it worked (yes, I know... there is a lesson to be learned there)
Plenty big enough for up to three lipsticks and a mirror... and not a wobbly edge in sight.
As you can see... they are completely different sizes!
And as for the little version... well it's big enough to hold my one and only lipstick... and it's only me that needs to know about that wobbly bit... well... me and all of you, of course. Just a pity that I don't often wear lipstick and when I do the last thing I think about is reapplying it when I'm out!
