Make-Up Bag Set

Make-Up Bag Set - 1 Large and 1 Small for your handbag    #sewing #makeupbags #toiletriesbag #makeup #storage #crafts via:withablast.blogspot.com

I can not tell you how relieved I am to have finished these two little bags ! I promised Cheri a small make-up bag for her handbag about two weeks ago already - started, stopped, did some other stuff and finally finished not only the small make-up bag, but a larger {more of a toiletries bag} one as well.


What a mission !  I am not a seamstress and have very limited knowledge of anything to do with sewing. I am sure this is actually something easy to do, especially if you follow a pattern or a tutorial. Unfortunately, I am not one of those clever people - I prefer to look at a picture, once, maybe twice, and then make my own version. 

The sewing machine nearly ended up in the swimming pool a couple of times !  If I can just get the thing to work as it is supposed to {now, this is according to the settings and the booklet which I actually do follow to the letter}

All I can tell you is in the above pic - the order of the layers 
Lining / Interfacing / Top {Outside} Fabric

Other than that ... no idea how I finished these two bags - lots of very un-lady like words, nipping and tucking, cutting and stitching, ripping and more stitching .... you get the idea!

Tried as I could, {and poor Mr PicMonkey} the photographs are also not accurate - it is navy blue and white stripes with bright red trimming - although I do not think it looks bad, it's just not reflecting the right colors.

Above is the little bag, or pouch if you prefer, seen from all sides - the button is purely decorative, hence the small strip of Velcro

And the larger bag

I did not line the bags with any kind of waterproof lining as I know Cheri would rather chuck it into the washing machine than wiping them clean every now and then.

Let me know what you think !

Ciao for now,

  4. These turned out good! I am the same way as you, no patterns. Then I get annoyed when the first and second, and maybe even more don't turn out! Oh but when it does turn out it is a great feeling! Great work! I saw you on funky junk interiors!

  22. Great job! You definitely did it the hard way, without a pattern so kudos to you! Patterns are so much easier to follow. I love the stripes against the pink. really pops! Visiting from Mellywood's Mansion! Cheers
