Makeup Bag

I am SOOOO totally stoked about this. I came up with the idea this last week and finally found a few hours to whip it out this morning. It went together amazingly well, absolutely no issues in the process (which never happens). I absolutely love it! I think I am going to dress up the cover in the future when I have some time.

It 8 inches high and 15 across and the clasp is magnetic- which was totally easy!! It has plenty of room for everything I need. I finally don't have to worry about messing up my brushes when I travel. The side pocket holds only makeup stuff. My toiletry bag is still used for everything else.
Speaking of the pocket I don't know if you can tell but I totally lined up the fabrics pattern... to bad I didn't think of it on the brushes part! I don't know where that came from because I am SOOO not usually that on top of things! It could be the fact that I picked up some wondertape that my mum blogged about before starting this and let me tell you that stuff changes lives...haha... I had the zipper in and perfect in all of 5 seconds, usually it's twenty minutes of pinning and repinning and fighting with the machine. Buy it!

I used peltex (or what ever that hard interfacing is) on the outside so it holds it's shape.

Oh and I hide every seam because I am definitely OCD about about raw edges. I will probably do a tutorial sometime in the future for this... but there's no telling how long that will take me.
WIP's I have been crazy busy sewing. There will be a lot of kitchen aid covers available shortly I will show you them over the next week or so. I think I have 7 more. And I am feeling pretty confident with my pattern now so I will hopefully be getting around to finally creating a tutorial for these as well. This one has been so difficult because I will actually need to do a pattern piece... and it's not all going to fit on one page... argh!
Alright well I am off I have so much to do... so little time!


  1. What an awesome idea! I will be looking forward to that tutorial. Or maybe I will follow your lead, and figure it out on my own. You know, if I ever get around to sewing anything again.

  2. I love it! Very,very clever.You can always make one for me as you're working out that pattern....
    Wonder tape, you said it, changes lives.

  3. Oooooooh!!!!! I LOVE IT! The shape is so cool and I like the pockets for the brushes. That is neat! And the fabric on the inside is SO pretty! Ok, I now must invest in this tape.

  4. I have to get some too. I still have a whole stack of bags to make...
