Makeup Bag

My oldest granddaughter stopped by the other day and asked if I could make her a new makeup bag.  I told her that I could, but suggested that I could help her make her own bag if she wanted, so we headed off to the sewing room.  She really wanted to use turquoise fabric, but the best I could come up with was a few scraps.  Then I remembered what I learned from Pat Sloan a few weeks ago and we put those scraps together to make a striped turquoise and green fabric.  We ended up with just enough for a fun new makeup bag that matches her favorite color nail polish perfectly!

Everything is better scrappy! Love the little bag.

That looks fantastic and I am sure she was thrilled with it. LOVE the colors.

Very nice! I think it's prettier than one piece of fabric would have been.

I Love your little Zipper bags ! They are very nice! I just made 20 pencil bags with the Koolaide & Carpi Sun juice bags for my craft students at church plus my grand children.
I am sure the cloth ones would have been better but this is what they wanted ,not hard at all . I will post a blog about them soon.
