We still have to show you how we thanked Valeria Baigacheva -our amazing silk teacher- last school year. Louka noticed while getting ready for our performances that Valeria could do with a new set of make-up bags, so we decided to make this our 2014 gift.
We did not really use a pattern; we just studied some existing make-up bags we own, until we came to these results. Inside the bags there are some separations to keep the bags a little organized.
As we did earlier for the kids gymnastics coaches we made Valeria a small aerial artist in a box.
Louka made the bun in the hair and I made the metal and fabric construction. In the background we glued some pictures of Louka and myself at practice the past year.
We also made a stamp –my first one ever!- to decorate a little card.
Meanwhile June is approaching fast so we will have to invent another thank you gift! HELP!
