Practical yet Beautiful Gift Idea For Art and Music Lovers

I just got these extra large zippered pouches I designed back from the printer yesterday. I was so pleased with the quality of the printing, the roomy inner hidden pocket and the waterproof lining. There are so many people in my life that I want to give these to that I hope I have enough left over to sell! My daughter, the ultimate teenage test marketer, grabbed one right away. What are you going to use it for? Well, she said, thinking more about how cool it looked then anything else… I can fit some spiral notebooks in here, and also my cello music. Then we both thought my mother would want one because she reads poetry at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. She could store her poetry in one. I thought I should probably keep one for myself, because in addition to my art making, I also love to knit and this would be a practical and pretty way to store my unfinished project along with the pattern directions. I also thought I may want to use this for a sketchbook and keep the pencils in the extra storage compartment. The 11×14″ size has plenty of room for my larger sketch books. What would you use it for?

This peacock portfolio is versatile for the student, teacher or artist. Anyone who needs to carry around a sketchpad, sheet music or notebooks will appreciate this stylish waterproof case. The hidden inner compartment is great for money, a smart phone or more. This is a great idea for students to use in between classes instead of carrying their full backpack to stash some essentials. Another use for this stylish organizer is as an extra large cosmetic bag.

Zippered fabric bags make a great secret Santa gift idea for the artsy women in your life. Printed on both sides with a peacock and pink flowers with piano music, these zippered bags are designed to fit essential makeup gear, giving it maximum points for practicality when carrying around your lip gloss, and nail polish. This is also a great bag to stash an unfinished knitting project.

* Made from durable 600d polyester fabric
* Zippered closure for easy access
* Zippered hidden interior compartment (perfect for smart phone, or pencils!)
* Double sided printing
* Approx. Dimensions: 14″ width x 11″ height
* Can fit 500 sheets of A4 paper

If you are looking for a gift for a music teacher, student or music lover this is the perfect gift for her. The musical art on the cosmetic bag will be the secret Santa gift, Channukah gift or stocking stuffer that she will think of you every time she uses it!
