I've been busy making some more of these toiletry bags, using some of my favourite fabrics, Flower Sugar III by Lecien, and a favourite pattern, Anna's Sminkepung, by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. These are trimmed with an assortment of lace and ric-rac...
...when adding the lace trimming, I always use a longer than usual stitch length so the lace and the fabric doesn't pucker. I also use a longer stitch for the top stitching too. The pattern has instructions for 2 sizes of toiletry bag, and these are the larger ones...
...these are quite quick to make, and are really useful to make as gifts for birthdays and Christmas presents...
...I'm going to make some more of these using some sewing themed fabrics too, that would be perfect for keeping a sewing kit in. These ones below are ready for my stall at a Christmas Craft Fair in Orford at then end of November.
