A Little Remembrance Gift

Hey there! 
Glad your here! :)

Today I'm showing you a little project that I made for my friend Laura of Decor to Adore.

If you read her blog then you know she is in the process 
of moving.  SO! she had a little Texodus party. You can read more about that here.

I wanted to give her a little remember-me gift. So I made her a sunglass case. 

This is another one of my wing it patterns. I just double crocheted into the back row. 
This is about 12 rows. I used my own sunglasses to fit. 

Folding it into a little more the thirds I stitched the sides together and added a single crochet 
to the edge so that it would look finished.  I then double crocheted the ruffle, added a button and a  chain stitch loop for the button hole.

And Voi-la! 

From this side.
And that side.

I stuffed it with a couple of items that will remind her of Arizona and me. :) 
Laura doesn't typically wear nail polish, so I gave her one of my favorite pale barely there pinks
from Essie and my all time favorite top coat ('cuz I'm a nail freak) 
I also gave her a gift card to In-n-Out Burger. I was thinking that there were no In-N-Outs in
Texas.... turns out, I was wrong.... Oh well! It happens.  :)
It's still the best darn cheese burger and chocolate shakes in fast food. 

I'll be sharing at these parties:

That was so sweet! She'll love all of that I bet. We do have In n Out Burgers here but not many. We actually have one about 4 miles from my house. Yummy!! :)

I'm going to try to get together with Laura soon.

I think of you everyday when I pull my sunglasses out!

Hopefully I'll get the house painted soon and then I can move on to my fingernails. :)

Thank you SO very much.
