Crocheted Doily Pillow

This weekends project was turning a crocheted doily that my mother made into a pillow.  How do you think it turned out?

MSU Dopp Kit

This weekends project was a MSU Dopp Kit (A Dopp kit is a small toilet bag made of leather, vinyl, or cloth, that is used for storing men's grooming tools for travel).  It will be a birthday present for my nephew (shhh..don't tell him).  I found this project online and thought it would make a good gift for him as his family travels a lot.  This is the link I used I thought the tutorial was pretty good.  They there lots of pictures to help you understand each step.  I did however have a few questions that the tutorial left out.  The dopp kit turned out good so I guess I guessed right.  I thought all in all it was a pretty easy project. The project took me about an hour and a half from start to finish.
