A fellow crafty friend at work asked me to make her something to conceal her tampons during “that time of the month”. She only has a few years left to endure, but she wanted them to be a little more stylish and discreet. I made this little wallet, which I’ve seen around in blogland. I’m actually very surprised my attempt turned out well enough to give away. I almost kept it for myself. ***(07/28/07) Sorry, but there is not a tutorial for this tampon wallet at this time. Thanks for your interest:)***
All this talk of tampons reminds me of a very embarrasing 8th grade experience. It was during US history, second hour. Little shy, quiet me pulls out my blue, 3-ring binder and to my horror there is a big honkin’ pad stuck smack dab on the front! They didn’t come in little individual packages and they were huge, by the way. I immediately ripped it off (imagine a very loud ripping sound) and shoved it into my bag at the same time that Tommy T. screams out to the class that, “Regina is on her period!!!” Regina: red faced and wanting to just die! Tis the brutality of adolescents.
Anyway, my friend gave me this amazing spiral, crocheted bracelet. She painstakenly makes spools of beaded thread to crochet into tube-like spirals. I love it!
