I've been on annual leave this week, and have had a rather busy week - Monday was spent helping a friend with a sewing lesson, and yesterday I had a day out shopping and lunching with a friend, so today at last I was able to get out my sewing machine and make a couple of these cosmetic bags. The pattern is "Anna's Sminkepung" by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. This one was made with a selection of batiks and a rather nice piece of turquoise linen that I bought from Lappedilla a couple of years ago. Oh and the perfect colour quilting thread was already in my thread box - this is King Tut shade 927 and is perfect for these fabrics. I added some wide olive green ric-rac to the front of the bag...
...the zipper is neatened on the inside with a little bit of hand sewing - I like this style of bag as the inside is really as neat as the outside. I'm really pleased with these nice smart boxed corners - they give a very professional finish to this little bag.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
