Another small finished object

Can you guess what it is?



How about in this photo? Now can you see what it is?



It's a "Personl Case". I've also seen them called "Women's Cases" and "Ragtotes". And no, I didn't make that last one up. Personally, I don't care for that name, but they do exist. I've been thinking of making one for a while and finally whipped one up. I've had more than a few embarassing moments with Feminine Hygiene products being flung onto counter or table while pulling my wallet, keys, etc. out of my purse. The last was at a restaurant with my son. Of course he asked, in a loud voice, "Mommy, what exactly is THAT?". Ugh! You cannot explain exactly what THAT is to a nearly-five year old boy! Don't even try. So, now I have a pretty case to carry monthly essentials in. For anyone who thinks I'm trying to "hide" the fact that I am a woman, I say Ha! I'm celebrating being a woman by carrying a pretty pink, flowery case!

Great idea! I keep my 'essentials' in a little change purse because my main bag is always flopping open (and showing the mess inside).

OH I love it! You need to doa tutorial - the world would be such a prettier place without random tampax being flung around:)

cracks me up that your 5 year old son said "exactly". My kids do to.

Very pretty and discreet way to carry feminine hygiene products. It should make them easier to find in a purse too. Think I better go make one for my purse...

Oh gosh, I had a tampon fly out of my purse and land in the aisle of an airplane once, lol! Great idea!
