Sweet Heart Drawstring Bag

Sewing:

Remember a few weeks ago when I made my 'Little Bit of Love' cushion and got distracted? ....well this is what I ran off to make. A sweet little draw string bag with an appliqued heart.


I trimmed the top of the bag with ric-rac which looks really cute. This pattern would make great little gift bags for a girl's party, or just use in place of wrapping paper for a special gift. 

Mine is going to use as a new little travel cosmetics bag!

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!
