Finished Girlfriend pouches

I completed eight of the nine girlfriend pouches last night and put them in my etsy shop this morning. Whew! Those were quite a lot more work than I had anticipated. I really enjoyed adding the finishing touches last night and stayed up until midnight doing so. I dyed matching cording for each then added a few coordinating beads on the flaps to keep them closed. When I added each hand dyed vintage crocheted doily to each back I left the top unattached to use as a lace pocket for tissues,coupons, etc. Double duty,two compartments are better than one right?
Some doilies were placed on an odd angle because of their shape which only adds to the quirkiness. You know me and perfection...I'm allergic to it :-)
These are completed except for the little "Girlfriend" label which will go on the back of each.

Periwinkle/dusty rose/mint green (Snorts when she laughs)

Orchid/Pink/green (Always lets you be you)
Purple (more purple than blue as in pic)/dark mint green (Never questions your decisions)
Fuchsia/Aqua/Lime (Always has her game face on)Purple/green (Will tell you if you look fat in that dress) I love this doily!!! Aqua/Lime (Runs with scissors)
Purple w/Lime (Eats desert first)
Orange/Aqua/Lime "Tattles"
I am finishing a blue/light wine pouch soon.
That's it for today! I think the tree will go up today.....................
