More Makeup Bags

So, a certain blogger gave me a couple of yards of very cute Amy Butler green polka dots when I was out in San Francisco least month. It is perfect for makeup and to carry other little goodies. Although it is only July, I am already planning out what I want to make for the Bust Craftacular coming up in December, which is going to include little bags like this one.

To give the bag a little more structure, I used batting between the polka dots and yellow lining. I also added some adorable grosgrain ribbon to the little strap, just to make it sassy.





I offered Amy a little something in exchange for the fabric and all I could get her to agree to is a case for her sunglasses. It should be super cute. Hopefully I will have time next weekend to try making one.

that ribbon that you used on the handle is a great accent. I'm pretty sure I have some of that in my stash...I should try making a zippered pouch soon...

Love this cute pouch! The fabric is excellent. I have a question for you... I seem to be asking everyone and anyone. I have the same brother sewing machine as you, I too am very fond of it, and I am trying my hand at machine quilting but can't get it. The treads on the underside are pulling. Have you ever had this problem? It looks like little teeth! Any suggestions to what to do to solve this? WHat tension number do you set your machine at? THanks in advance.
