Baby Cosmetic Bag

A friend of mine made a lovely cosmetic bag, so I asked her to show me how she did it, and made one for baby, it will come in useful to keep the baby toiletries when mom and baby visit granny 🙂

I wanted the bag to be biggish, so I cut strips of alternating fabrics, 7 cm x 20cm (including the 1 cm seams on either side)

Top stitched the sides of the panels.

After I had ironed on the fusible batting, I joined the animated panels by sewing them together on the top and bottom edge, so the orange fabric just peeps out between the animated panels.

I then added an orange panels to the top, and finished up the cosmetic bag.

A great tutorial on  how to line and attach a zipper to a cosmetic bag can be found here –  http://www.diynetwork.com/how-to/make-and-decorate/crafts/how-to-sew-a-lined-makeup-bag

Then just to make it cuter I added a few odds and ends, a little zip-puller, a bow at the front and knotted accessory at the top edges 😉
