Easy Sew Cosmetics Bag - even I can make it!

I have been enjoying one of my days off this week with a little sewing, an easy sew cosmetic bag. I love You Tube, and blogs, they really do open up the world of sewing to everyone. I purposely searched for a easy to follow tutorial to make a cosmetics bag. This one at So Sew Easy is fantastic it includes a template and video tutorial. It has very clear instructions and is easy to follow.

Rummaging through my fabric box I settled on a blue print for the outer fabric, and a pink for the inside lining. I was using quite thin fabric so added some iron on interfacing to the outer fabric, to make it a little stronger.

I did customise mine a little, adding some rick rack trim and a Made With Love label inside my bag. These should be added once you have cut out your pattern but before you start sewing the bag together. Take your time and do not rush, wonky stitches will stand out. Unpick and start again if you have to, its worth it.
