Sewing Project: Applique Makeup Bags

Hi everyone! Today I’m finally sharing one of the projects I’ve been working on for the craft fair coming up in May. I’m making these little makeup/everything bags to sell. It’s been fun experimenting and coming up with the different designs. Now I’m trying to decide which ones I should make multiples of. Which one is your favorite?

For those of you who are wondering, the bags are made with a thick natural tone denim twill and lined with cotton. The designs are made with cotton fabrics which I adhered with wonder-under and then machine stitched around. Except for the feathers, which are from an old sheet, I came up with the designs. My boyfriend Phillip was nice enough to make templates for the glasses and the camera with Illustrator to make look a little nicer.

If anyone is interested, I would be happy to post a tutorial for one of the designs, just let me know!

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend so far!
