I am mad for bags and makeup bags and I think they are a nice easy thing to make and if I end up with a mountain of them they are good to give away as gifts. Delving into my fabric stash I found these materials, these particular ones were swatches sent to me be by a sofa company, so I turned them into little makeup bags.
The fabric is upholstery fabric and they are lined with plain cream cotton, so I didn't bother to interface or use wadding so these were ultra quick and easy to make. I only stopped as I ran out of co-ordinating zips. Cutting the materials and gathering the supplies took longer than it did to run them up on the machine.
The lace and ribbon were added from my stash and the lace was preciously the neckline and petticoat bottom of a child's vintage dress.
Once finished I added little beaded zip pulls.
It was my intention last year to learn how to make jewellery so that I could add little embellishments to my sewing things, like zip pulls and bag charms, but the pesky jewellery making embedded itself into my head and it took over the sewing!
Now I am back to where I intended to be, lots of sewing, little bit of jewellery, let's see how long that lasts :)
