I am excited to reveal the new makeup bags in my shop!
Remember when I made these makeup bags last fall for a weekend getaway? These sizes work especially well for travel – the pink one holds my makeup and “stuff” and the brownish one holds my toiletry items and “stuff.”
Believe it or not, this pencil pouch was my inspiration. I love that size, even though it doesn’t have a flat bottom and doesn’t look very girly. This particular bag was probably made in another country, but it works fine (for now) to hold my sketching pens and pencils.
I use my quilted makeup bags constantly, so I thought someone else out there might like them too.
For you fabric enthusiasts, in this first batch, I used fabrics from the Good Folks collection and the Pop Garden collection. I’ve got a couple patchwork makeup bags lined up on my sewing table in a wonderful variety of Sis Boom fabrics too. (sneak peak in yesterday’s post)
They each measure 9 inches wide and 8 inches tall, offering plenty of room to hold foundation, powder, brushes, even a comb and hair styling products. Yes, I like to use a lot of products!
I added some fancy embellishments to these, making them a little more special than the plain old makeup bags you get when it’s freebie days at the department stores.
They are colorful, girly and functional – what more could you ask for!
This is my newest and favorite sewing project, so I will be adding more to the my shop. Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

Simply gorgeous Terri!! Love all the embellishments you have added. I am sure they will be best sellers.

love the last spring yellow bag! great addition to your shop.
Those are so very cute. I had made something like that as part of the bridemaids gifts for my daughters wedding a year ago. Everytime my daughter sees those girls they alwas have those bags, so they do get used. Well worth it. Adding embellishments make them really cute.
They’re so precious! You also managed to make good folks even more adorable-quite impressive. How do you have the energy at the end of the day to sew too?
