Ok my daughter wanted to give some lip balms as gifts for her friends so I made these in the hoop holders to put them in.

Now it may have been me but I didn’t find the instructions very clear at a particular part and it took me three attempts to work out how I should do them but once I had worked it out I made all 5 in a few minutes. The pattern was from Pickle Pie Designs and it was $5.99.

The pattern tells you to use wadding/batting but I found the holder to be to small for the Maybelline baby lip balms we were using, I tried my second one without and it was still a little to small in my opinion.

So I left out the wadding and increased the size to 115% on my sewing machine and I think they have turned out just fine.
