Quick Finish


Just a quick finish to show today. Bunny finishes a week of Vacation Bible School this morning, and I put together this makeup bag last night as a gift for her teacher.


I used one of my favorite Anna Maria Horner Lou Lou Thi prints for the outside, and a Denyse Schmidt print for the lining. I picked up a few inexpensive goodies at Target (does anyone else love the E.L.F. makeup line as much as I do?) to fill the inside. My husband helped Bunny pick a bouquet of flowers from the garden to go along with it.


I love the size of this bag and may have to make another one for myself. Isn't that the way it always is?

Linking up to Sew & Tell Friday and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

  1. Heidi, That is such a cute bag and what a great gift. I know it is not church-like, but I am coveting that bag and want to make one.

  9. Lovely. One thing that really stood out for me with this bag is what a perfectly chosen fussy cut of that fabric you used.

  14. Cute bag. I really need to try my hand at bags. It's the zipper that I shy away from. Silly, I know!
