Makeup Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The color combinations and finding a good use for fabric that's been hanging around for 20 years! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Find a fabric that has several colors in it, then coordinate fabrics that go with those colors to make the pieced square. Color coordinate the lining, quilting threads and zipper. To get the fancy machine stitching to meet evenly at the point of the chevron, start there and sew to the end, then reverse the stitch on the machine, begin exactly at the first stitch of the previous stitching and sew in the opposite direction.

What you will need

  • Cotton fabrics
  • cotton and polyester machine threads
  • zipper
  • fusible fleece or wonder under plus batting plus fusible interfacing
