At the weekend I had a super day on Sunday, sewing with my youngest daughter, Alice. She is currently working her gap year at our local quilt shop Quilters Haven (lucky girl!) before she heads off to uni in September. Anyway, Alice loves sewing and creating (I wonder who she takes after?!) and we spent a wonderful Sunday afternoon sewing together, as she wanted to make some more of these beautiful cosmetic bags for 2 of her work colleagues. The pattern she used is "Anna's Sminkepung, by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. The first one was made with a selection of red and white fabrics - she did all the quilting and sewing herself - her zipper insertion deserved full marks! She chose some red crocheted lace for the trimming. The fabrics all came from Sew and So's, which Alice bought when we went there for a shopping trip a few weeks ago. The pink batik bag was trimmed with some gorgeous fuchsia pink velvet ribbon/lace that I bought from Little A Designs.
