When you’ve been out of the game for a while you need to break yourself in slowly. My skill set is a little rusty, so I decided on something simple. A cosmetic bag.
Made by Marzipan posted this video tutorial on how to make this adorable little bag. Shouldn’t take you an hour…tops! Looks like she used quilting weight fabric in her version, but I opted for a heavier weight cotton canvas which I bought from JoAnn Fabric years ago. More sturdy I figure, especially if I plan on giving this as a gift to a young lady headed to college.
The interior is nice and roomy. The end tabs are just ribbon.
Now for the hyper detailed sewist that we are, a few details are missing in her video, but you can figure it out.
