The Tula Team - Tissues, Toiletries & Tote

Back in November 2013 I shared this Tula Pink bag with you - you can read all about it here:

I made the tote to give to my son's partner, Ana, for Christmas 2013 and I also made coordinating accessories - a toiletries bag and a tissue cover.  If you're a regular reader you might have guessed by now that I never shared the accessories as what follows are more of those photos that have just resurfaced when I recently cleared out one of my cameras.

Fabrics used:
Topiary, Eye Drops and Spencer Stripe from the Parisville collection - all by Tula Pink for Free Spirit.

I love how the lining fabric is visible through the outer tissue cover, those fabrics work so well together.

Have you ever made something, forgotten about it then found a photo a while after?
There're even more photos of other makes on the camera, fun looking back at everything, though!

  1. Beautiful work Chrissie and yes.....I have found projects I took photos of and forgot too!

  2. I don't think i have Chrissie but then I am not as prolific a maker as you clearly are :) loving your fabric choices as always!

  3. I consider you a quilty lady, so it was a nice surprise to see you on Bag Brag Tuesday and find my way back to your blog. I'm loving your boxy toiletry bag; I've been meaning to whip up something along those lines, too. Every moment from now until Dec. 25 is spoken for, though, so that will have to wait for the new year!

  4. I love these pieces! Yes, I have a post that needs to be written about a quilt that I finished last January.

  5. Absolutely beautiful Chrissie! I love your fabric choices, just stunning. Such a lovely gift.

  6. Wow you sure did justice to those beautiful fabrics Chrissie!

  7. Funny how I often find myself at your blog, through a linkup where a project of yours has caught my eye! I just worked a bit again yesterday and today with the very same Tula Pink fabrics! I really like the make-up bag and tissue holder, so cool how the two fabrics blend. I have them both, although the eyedrops one is in the aqua colour.

  8. What a lovely gift, I love that the accessories are coordinating without being matchy-matchy. Usually I find photos from get togethers or a part of a trip leftover on my camera, I tend to edit and post crafty photos as soon as humanly possible.

  9. These are lovely Chrissie! What fab gifts x

  10. Very pretty and I'm sure they will be well loved.
