Just Listed-Mario Brothers Toiletry Bags

Happy Monday!

I’m so happy to introduce a new set of Toiletry and Make Up Bags to the Pink Toe Press Etsy Shop!

These bags are a  fun bunch! They feature everyone’s favorite Italian Plumber: Mario …and all his friends!  A great gift for boys and girls, these bags are durable, attractive, and spacious. There are TWO sizes available: One Boxy Bag ( think DOP Kit) and a smaller pouch (for pencils or makeup).

The bags are of durable construction and fully lined. You can see the bright, colorful lining in the photos above. The bags are sturdy and quilted with an interfacing to maintain their shape. The boxy bags will hold up in your carry-on or your suit case  on travel trips. Tuck one in your book-bag to keep your computer chargers, stylus, and mouse all in one place! I keep one in my purse with my phone charger, a spare pen, and lipstick!

 

Two awesome Mario   fabrics make these a great gift for girls, boys, or adults!  One features all your favorite characters from the games. The other design (in blue) shows a few of your favorite characters running along blocks with Piranha Plants and Goombas. Also shown are the matching hair bows/ bow ties. Get a complete set for a Christmas or Birthday gift! Available online  and at my upcoming craft fairs this summer!

Where the Unicorn Roam

If you hadn’t noticed from earlier posts, I’ve been on a bit of a hair-bow kick! I’ve been breaking into my vintage fabric stash and making some amazingly cute bows for hair of all lengths.

My current favorites are the Star Wars Bows (of course) and these cute Unicorn Bows. The fabric is a vintage fabric from the mid 1960’s to early 1970’s. The name on the selvage just says “Carousel”. I purchased it from a woman at the RoseBowl Flea Market in Pasadena who had a more than impressive collection of vintage fabrics for sale. I think that Flea Market is one of the things I miss most about LA, but I digress…

Unicorn Bow

They are currently for sale in my Etsy shop. Each bow is handmade by yours truly. I am currently working on a different style bow that does not have the seam along the edges. It’s a bit wider, but not as tall as this design. Stay tuned.

Unicorn Bow Back

Alligator clips make for easy styling. The clips are good for a variety of hair lengths.
