This Friday's project: Makeup Bag! I'm very excited about this one because I've never really had a pretty makeup bag before. I did get one from a friend for my bridal shower, but it seems silly to use a bag that says "Bride" on it when I am no longer a bride. Plus it's a white bag, which doesn't look all that great when it's had makeup in it for forever, it's pretty dingy. This tutorial is pretty similar to the change purse with a few little differences.
2 Fat Quarters (I used the leftovers from the reversible purse tutorial) or you can use 1 fat quarter if you don't care about the lining being a different color.
Some fusible interfacing
9" Zipper (or bigger if you want a bigger bag)
Step 1: Cut out two pieces of fabric to any size you want. I don't have a ton of makeup, so I made mine out of leftovers from my reversible purse project. My pieces were 8" x 18". Iron the short sides in 1/4" for the hem. No need to sew them right now. At this point you can also iron on the interfacing to one of your pieces. I ironed it onto the piece that I wanted for the outside to make later steps a little bit easier.
