I decided to have a go at making a small makeup bag, with a curved top - I didn't have a pattern, so draughted my own - cue several sheets of graph paper and a LOT of creative mess later using some leftover scraps of linen and batik and this is what I've got - a small makeup bag, lined, with a zipper, with a tab and decorated with Yo-yos's.....
.....I covered the seams with strips of binding, made a "flat" bottom - and now I've got itchy fingers to have a go at making some more with vintage floral fabrics, and denim, decorating them with lace, and ric-rac, and fancy buttons - the list is endless!!! Now I just need to write down the instructions - if only I could remember how I made it!!
