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 ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted the bag to be biggish, so I cut strips of alternating fabrics, 7 cm x 20cm (including theย 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 ย how to line and attach a zipper to a cosmetic bag can be found here – ย 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰
