My taste in fun little gifts hasn’t really changed since middle school, I still love all the cute nail polish kits, makeup samplers, etc that pop up around the holidays. So, when a little package of glittery craft supplies came in the mail, I thought I could use them to make a cute stocking stuffer for girls. I started with a solid light pink material, taped if off and painted on the glittery Tulip fabric paint. Then I let it dry before sewing it up into a cute little nail polish pouch, the perfect size for 3 Essie nail colors! I’m sure you could use another brand about the same size also!

What’s your favorite Essie nail polish color? I think mine is Ballet Slippers, the light pink one.

    So cute and I appreciate the free pattern and tutorial…but: when I click on the ” download” button, the pattern comes up in one size, but when I click on the”view online” button, it is a different size. And since there is not 1″ square on the pattern to determine if the pattern is the correct size, I’m lost. Don’t know what size my pattern is supposed to be. Can you help? Thanks!

    I wonder if you could coat the elastic in the glitter paint too? That might look fancy! ;-)
