This is my makeup bag. SCARY, I know. I've probably had it almost 20 years (really?). I think I got it in high school. Anyway, it is so full these days that I can barely zip it, not to mention the fact that it looks disgusting.
So I chose a cosmetic case pattern from Cabbages and Roses' Home-Made Vintage book (which is full of beautiful sewing patterns and ideas in shabby-chic style!) and made a new make-up bag with this pretty cream and rose pattern.
Isn't it pretty?
It's a fairly easy pattern, fully-lined, similar to our wet bag tutorial, but a little more polished.
Ta-da! A little better than my old bag, right?
I added a few fabric rosettes to dress it up a little.
And now all my makeup fits nicely inside (and I can even zip it up!)
