Make-Up Bag

Here is a make-up bag that I whipped up for my sister-in-law while she was here visiting.  If you are looking to make a make-up bag this one is easy and looks really cute in person.  I found the tutorial over at Liesl Made.  You should check out the one she made.  It is too cute with the ticking fabric and I just LOVE her name!  It's so different and pretty!

I added an applique butterfly because my sister-in-law loves butterflies.  I found the pattern for the applique over at  Nutmeg Designs

I messed up the zipper a little.  I lost my zipper foot and only had invisiable zippers so I couldn't get close enough to give it a clean stitch.  It was just for fun anyway and my sis didn't seem to mind.  I also used fusiable fleese instead of interfacing which gave it a softer look.  The fabric is a cordoroay and I'm not sure who makes it.  The straps are a rope trim from Joanne's. 

It's so nice to be able to enjoy the talents of other women!  Thanks ladies for helping me create a great and quick gift for someone I love!
