Swoon Olive

 For all my latest adventures...check out my Instagram

I have finished another bag today and it's adorable! This vanity case is the Olive pattern from Swoon. I made it for my niece, so the Christmas surprise is ruined, but I couldn't wait to share because it's just so cute! I think every woman I know needs an Olive. This little bag has a great round shape with a patch pocket on the front and piping details. 

I think this bag would be perfect for hair or makeup accessories or even for a traveling sewing kit. The only drawback is that there are no inside pockets. However, with the curvy opening, inside pockets may be kind of hard to access. I may try to add some pockets next time though, just to see...I'm thinking elasticized mesh pockets may work.

Overall this is an adorable little bag. I love the vintage feel of the design and I think this classic camera print suits it perfectly. The fabric is from a Kanvas line called "That's Hollywood" and the pink is Michael Miller's mirror ball dots, which I will always love. A great sew, I have yet to be disappointed by a Swoon design.

I did lose a friend while making this project little ripper took a tumble while trying to rip those metal bits off of this zipper....RIP little ripper. You served me well!
