This is another bag I like to make. It is quite a fiddly bag to make but it is really such a nice little make-up bag. It has four outside pockets and it is fully lined. I got this pattern from one of the old Better Homes and Gardens Quilting magazines - but it was one that came out around Christmas time for making gifts and quilty projects. I use a pattern for the small make-up bag as well - it is quite easy, if anyone is interested in the pattern just let me know and I can also send off a photo copy.
These bags are a pattern I got with my fat quarter club that I belonged to for about 4 years ( I now have about 50 packages of 8 fat quarters each -- see where this bag thing came from) The pattern was designed to make one bag from a single fat quarter collection - but I found that if I cut the fabric just slightly differently I could make 2 bags from 8 fat quarters - and still have leftover fabric. They are quite a good sized bag -- about 19 inches wide and 30 inches deep - a good beach bag or shopping bag. They make really cute bags with a fabric grouping - so I made two watermelon bags and two flip flop bags. These a just simple bags - no inside pockets or zippers or buttons. One the weekend I made another bags -- pictures to follow soon. It is a completely different bag and I quite like it.
