One of the projects that inspired us to begin this blog is this fun make-up bag. I am addicted to these little cuties! They are so quick and easy to make. We found the tutorial over at threebears--click here to see it. One little change--we added a piece of duckcloth (canvas) to make it a little sturdier. You can also add a third layer--a yummy lining to match. Just adhere the outside fabric to one side of the canvas and the lining fabric to the other side with a craft or fabric spray adhesive before you start sewing. A few of our readers have already received one of these bags filled with lotion, lip gloss, anti-bacterial handwash, etc. as birthday, Mother's Day, and thank-you gifts. Lucky you!
Try modifying the measurements to create different sized and shaped bags. This little one is a camera case. The camera's strap hangs out the end after it's zipped so it can be carried. (Sorry there's not a picture with the camera in it, but that proved to be a little difficult.)
