Fabric Roll-Ups

A few months ago I found a pattern for a make-up roll-up in a sewing book and thought I could adapt it to use to carry utensils for lunch. My first template, for myself, used the 18" one I used for the denim pillow.

Using fabric I bought intended for a tote bag, I made an acceptable and useful product.

But thinking about making some for gifts I learned a lot making four more and changed the original size to 16" square. These are not perfect by any means, but handmade is always better than perfect, don't you think?

I found single servings of utensils and straws and tucked a note about the materials in the largest pocket.

Having a Christmas deadline made me push past the set-backs and problems I encountered. When the clock is ticking and when you are focused, you can finish projects. I need to remember this!
