Chanel A-La-Mode


My mom-in-law LOVES Chanel face powder . . . and I love it when she gives me the little black drawstring bags it comes in! Of course you can leave the famous brand name on the front, but where’s the fun in that? 🙂 Instead, I like to cover the label with a teeny remnant. This bit of green fabric with embroidered flowers was perfect (does it look familiar? ♥), and I added some colorful “reverse blanket stitch” on the edge for extra a-la-mode. Now it’s ready for its new life as a pretty jewelry pouch . . . or even a wristlet. ♥

  1. I like it! unfortunately Channel powder is much to expensive for me, but a small pouch like that is made in a second 😉 and decorated like this is looks even more cute 🙂

    • Thank you! I have a HUGE editing project going now, but I was having crafting withdrawals so this was quick and easy and fun! 🙂

  2. Great up-cycle Katherine. I didn’t know Chanel face power come in an awsome bag. I must remember that for next time. I’ve worn Estee Lauder since I was 15, but I’d make the ‘one-time’ switch just to get that cute little bag.

  3. Hi Katherine. This pouch is so cute! You really never let anything go waste and you make it look so much better than it was originally.

    Can I have your email id? There is something I would like to discuss with you. Alternatively, you can also write to me directly at
