Monogrammed Black & White Make Up Purse

Sewing:

Make up purse
I have been thinking about making this for years now – a hand embroidered, personally monogrammed make up purse……..I have about a million drawings for different versions of it (I won’t share then with you as my artistic talents are slightly lacking in the sketching department).

Another reason I had yet to make this was that for the life of me I could not remember how to insert a zip – and funnily enough was scared to try again?? Lucky my mum (former home economics teacher and sewing extraordinaire) was on hand to show me how it was done.

I used a medium weight furnishing fabric for the outside of the purse and lined it with a cute little black and white spot.

It was a surprisingly quick project and is going to make its home with my dear Aunty, as a belated birthday present.

The back of the make up purse - with my label!
