Once the "toalettveske" (toiletry bag) was completed for Alice, I just had to make her a matching cosmetic bag too - so using the same fabrics as before, "Salt Air" by Cosmo Cricket for Moda, and "Painter's Canvas" for Michael Miller, and using the pattern "Anna's Sminkepung" by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa, I set to work. I decided to add a little bit of trimming to this one, just to make it a bit more feminine (Alice doesn't really do lace and frills and pink and girly!!)...
...and here it is completed with one of my labels too. (I forgot to sew the label into the side-seam, so hastily stitched into the corner when I was machining the binding into position!!). The zipper has been slip-stitched by hand, and the bindings have too - I try to make the inside of the bag look as neat as the outside! It will be a great set for Alice to use at uni, especially if she comes home for the odd weekend and if she goes to stay with her friends. So now I've made her a quilt for uni, and a toiletry bag and a cosmetic bag - does she need anything else??!!
