Watercolor Sunglasses case {Make one}

I don't know what you lovelies have been up to lately (and I would love to hear) but we have been basking in the sun, taking lots of walks, eating fresh pineapple, and enjoying late evening sunsets. I must say the idea of summer just warms my heart. With our upcoming trip on my brain, I have been daydreaming of being completely organized this vacation....basically hoping my purse or beach tote don't become a bottomless pit for everyone else's "stuff". One way is by designating special places for my things. I know... crazy concept. So this weekend while busting out the watercolors for the little man to create some masterpieces of his own...
I recycled some small fabric bags I've gotten from Anthropologie and gave them a new look. I get them for free any time I purchase a pair of sunglasses or a piece of jewelry. They come home and sit untouched in my jewelry drawer and I thought it was about time these ladies got a little makeover and made an appearance on this trip. So they got down with some watercolors over the weekend. And now I love them so much. 

I really had no idea what would happen when I started to paint on the fabric but felt like I had nothing to lose since they were free. I slipped a piece of watercolor paper inside the bag so it wouldn't bleed through to the other side. However, I did end up painting both sides. I also painted three separate coats and kept playing around with the colors. It was sort of addicting. Overall, I am pretty thrilled to have three of these little babies accompany me on the trip. I may use them for different things or give one or two away as a gift to other gals going on the trip. We'll see if I can separate from them. 

What have you recycled lately? I love a good recycled project. 


  1. I recently started working at Anthro and I think they'd probably pay you some good money for this idea!

    I'll see what I can do ;)

    But really, they look awesome! Great idea!
