Make up Bag tutorial

Hello friends!

I am joining the CRAFT RELAY of my blog friend Stina and proudly present my tutorial to you:

make1

Supplies needed:

make2

The Make Up Bag Pattern ( download here: make up bag pattern )

Fabric for the outside

Fabric for the inside (I chose fleece)

Felt in matching colour

Scissors

Zipper

So first, print out the pattern and cut 2 pieces of the outside fabric as well as 2 pieces of the inside fabric

make3

Now, take 1 outside-piece and an inside piece and the zipper

make4

Then, put the outside fabric turned inside-out onto the zipper like you see in the picture below!

make5

The inside fabric – the white fleece – needs to be put onto the zipper like this:

make6

See?

make7

One more picture to show you what it will look like:

make8

Take some pins to make sure it will be fixed by the time you sew the parts together.

make9

make10

ew the parts together. It’s up to you if you want to use a sewing machine or sew by hand.

make11

By the way, I used a normal stitch :)

make13

You will notice that by the time you arrive at the zippers end with the pull tab, it will be complicated to sew. So just stop some cm before and pull it open.

make14

Now, you can sew without any trouble!

make15

This is what your piece will look like now.

make16

make17

Sew the other side of the bag the same way.

make18

If you want to, you can now finish the bag or sew a pocket to the front.

make19

It’s your decision what your pocket will look like. I decided to make it from pink felt.
Therefor I cut out a square piece of felt,

make20

folded the edges

make21

used pins to hold the parts down

make22

added a pretty ribbon to the top of the pocket

make23

make0

and I was sewing the ribbon to the top.

make24

Then, I sew the whole pocket to the bag

make25

using the Zig Zag stitch.

make26

:)

make28

After finishing the pocket, fold the both sides of the bag onto each other, the outisde pieces are facing each other.

make29

Open the zipper. This is very important!!!!!!

make30

Looks like this now.

make31

Use pins to help holding the pieces together.

make32

Sew around the pieces. Use your sewing machine or stitch by hand.

make33

make34

It will look like this now.

make36

Cut off the overlapping pieces of fabric and

make37

turn the bag inside-out

make38

(that’s why you needed to leave the Zipper OPEN!!!!)

make40

Now, your bag is done. :) You can store your Make Up supplies in it or some secrets or pencils or stickers you collect ooooooor… whatever you want. :) Wasn’t that a fun project?! Well, it was so much fun for me ❤

Here’s another bag I made using this technique:

Happy sewing!

    This is so cute! And it looks pretty simple. I could probably handle this. And I love anything made with felt. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Cute thing! And thank you so much for posting such detailed instructions. I have always shied away from any project involving a zipper, but I think I might just try it with your help! Bookmarked!
