LITTLE BUCKET COSMETIC BAG

The pattern for this cosmetic bag can be found on Etsy at Napkitten Pattern.  It is easy to follow, and the only problem I had was caused by using  foam. This made it  difficult when adding the binding, and the inside top and bottom pieces.   I'm not as yet experienced at using this product!  I've used it in bags and it's been great, but small pieces...well I need to learn a few tricks of the trade!

The owner of this Etsy Shop, Shannon was very helpful.  She was quick to reply to any questions!

A MERRY CHRISTMAS GIFT

This tote bag is just basic with no inner pockets, and  one large outer one.   My friend hinted she would like a bag with no pockets, something very plain, no closures, so this is what I came up with.  She had previously seen the fabric and loved it.  I could not, not add the front pocket nor add the grommet !!  I also quilted the bag and added a bottom insert, so the bag wouldn't sag.  I wouldn't mind having a whole bolt of this fabric...it's absolutely beautiful!!

The fabric is by Katarina Rocella and can be viewed at her blog site HERE!  She is one amazing young woman! I ordered the fabric from Fabric Spark, a Canadian fabric store!

 Now looking at the bag, I see the grey fabric should have been lined up to match!  Too late!  I don't think my friend would be too concerned!!  I'll try to remember next time!  It's so soft, smooth, and.... squishy!   This is one of my favorites!

This little pouch is so cute, and would make a great stocking stuffer!!  The approximate size is about 3.5 long, 1.25 inches tall and 2.25 inches wide.

  I would really like to make a few more using Christmas fabric.  There's a  tutorial by Deby Cole on YouTube which you can find HERE or if you prefer a print out of the tutorial, visit  Sew So Easy.

A CHRISTMAS POUCH

What a Wonderful Life is the theme of this pouch..how can you tell?  I downloaded some pictures and then printed them onto fabric sheets.  They were then sewn onto the front and back panels of the pouch.   There's so many excellent pouch tutorials out there.
