It's a Christmas finish!

My darling sister asked me to make her a couple of "cute" cosmetic bags; Laurie Wisbrun's Tufted Tweets fit the bill perfectly!
Then she asked me to make snack bags, lined with some type of waterproof material that match the cosmetic bags. HUH?! Actually, it was okay; not hard at all once I figured out a few things. I may make a tutorial because they're quick, inexpensive, and nothing says love like vinyl! Right?

Two on the left are cosmetic bags with zippers. Two on the right are vinyl-lined snack bags with velcro closures.

The insides (I love when bags coordinate inside with the outside). And of course, a little treat: banana-flavored monkey floss and enchanted unicorn bandages.

Of All the Nasty Things to Say..

It's a darn good thing that I have a sense of humor. My name is the target of crude and untrue acronym-ing. I try to rationalize this horrific affliction/smear campaign by thinking, "They're obviously talking about Hilary Duff. She really can't act, or sing, and now she's written a paranormal romance novel." But um, she's rolling in the dough and apparently the rest of us Duffs are more akin to doughboys because here's the distasteful slander-suit-waiting-to-happen:

I think that The Deliriously Unyielding Fabric Fiend is closer to the truth, don't you?
And who sneaked off with all my freaking donuts??!! How am I supposed to live up to this moniker without donuts?!
