Mr F bought me a gorgeous Estee Lauder cosmetics and skin care gift set for Christmas. It was the perfect excuse for making a new cosmetic bag to keep some of these goodies in! I've used my favourite pattern for this bag, Anna's Sminkepung by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. This time I've teamed some precious Tilda fabrics with some vintage lace trimming. I've even used some Tilda fabric for the lining - how decadent is that! This cosmetic bag has been layered with a fusible felted polyester wadding, Pellon H630, which is great for small bags. I've quilted it very simply using a variegated King Tut quilting thread, and I'm really pleased with the finished pouch. Life really is too short to save those precious fabrics and trimmings, so I shall probably make a few more Tilda bits and pieces this year.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
