Makeup Bag Tutorial

March 08, 2012

This is a perfect little bag to keep your makeup in.
Again I used my new material, it is so versatile. 

Just a little lace and tassel will do.

Here I used a little more cotton lace.

I hope you can follow the step by step.
I think you could make it a bit bigger, maybe 
one centimeter all around.
You need pretty material for the outside
and cotton lined wading for the inside.

Here I used a zipper that is way too long, 
I use these on my baby pouches.
I do like to use longer zippers in my work
so my needle doesn't break when it hits the zipper's metal end.

The first step is to zig-zag the zipper on one side of the bag.
I marked where I should start and end on both sides
of the zipper.
Then stitch the other side.

Now straight stitch the wading to the other side 
of the zipper, pin where the material starts and ends.

You can see the step a bit better in these pictures.

Repeat this with the other side.

                                        Now the zipper's ends are hidden between two layers  
                                                                         of material.

At this stage I decorated the front.
If I did it before, I wouldn't be able to get it 
exactly in the middle.

I pinned all the parts together and stitched them
 leaving the corners and an opening for turning
the bag inside out.

I left a ten centimeter opening free 
on the side where you can see the ruler
and cut the excess zipper ends.

Here I stitched all four corners closed.

I turned the bag inside out and ironed all the sides,
and closed the opening on the bottom by hand.

I am afraid you'll see a lot more projects
made until I'm cured of this 'new material'... 

I hope you have a lovely week.
