It's with a smile and a sigh of relief that I'm sharing this finish. I've mentioned that I was working on designing a gift for someone special, so it gives me great pleasure to finally show you what I was making.
|The Rainbow Connection Craft Case|
It's custom made craft storage case for one of my nieces. She apparently has the "crafty" gene. ;o) No surprise then that I had an idea she might like a Rainbow Loom for her birthday. If you're at all familiar with a Rainbow Loom, you know that it comes with several components, which I think means it needs a pretty case to keep from losing parts (besides, who wants to keep it stored in the original packaging as the manufacturer suggests? Bleh.)
|Simple, but customized storage for the Rainbow Loom and other crafty bits.|
My design for the case, is obviously, similar to a suitcase, as I thought this would be the easiest means of keeping things in their place without the risk of anything falling out in transit.
|All fabrics are from Patty Young's Textured Basics line. You know me and polka dots. ;o)|
Just lift the velcro secured flap...
|Check out my little labels on the flap of the loom storage compartment! Love the fussy cut label on the left and the "Handmade with love by" stamp for the label on the right. Easy to make and add a special touch.|
to uncover the compartment that holds the loom.
|The Rainbow Loom is kept safe in it's own compartment.|
I'm sure my niece will have other crafty goodies she will want to corral, so besides the Rainbow Loom and all its accoutrements, there's still some storage space inside, along with the two pockets on the outside of the case.
I can picture her having a good time making bracelets with the loom for herself and her friends, never having to worry where her supplies are. That's the hope anyways. ;o)
I'm so happy with how this idea turned out and I couldn't resist adding one more special touch to the back of the case. Some bunny love. ;o)
