I am in happy mood today as Izzah has started to know how to float herself and swim. She can swim about 2 or 3 meters, but not more than that. But I am so impressed with the progress...because we just on our 4th session, and teaching by a non-pro swimmer.. ME hahaha
Here I wanted to share with you on how to do your own make up bag..
Things that we need (measurement in inch):
2 pieces Outer Fabric =8.5 x 5.5
2 pieces Lining fabric =8.5 x 7
Bag bottom =8.5 x 3.5
1 piece lining fabric for pocket =8.5 x 4 (Optional)
Bag bottom fabric about 6 x 1.5 for zipper end closure
Zipper + Zipper head
Sew the bag body to the bag bottom, then measure & cut your batting. I usually didnot precut the batting as I dont want it to waste incase of overize or under.
Then top stich the joining together with batting at the back
Add some texture to the bag body by simple quilt.
Attach the pocket to the ling fabric
I added a handmade label and a ribbon here, embellish as you wish :)
Measure the zipper: the zipper should at least smaller that the length of the bag by 1/2 inch. Here it should be 8 inch
Put in the zipper head and cut a piece of fabric that can bind the zipper end. Hope the picture well explained my bad wording here LOL
Fold the zipper end and sew on top if it.
Make it on both sides
The attached the zipper to the bag body and the lining
Top stitch the zipper, but up only to the zipper end, not till the end of the body fabric.
Then attached the other side to the zipper
Top sttich it, sorry but here its a bit difficult to do, because its in a small hole of the bag body.
Now fold in the one inside the red-green box below (I will show in the next picture on how to fold it.
Sew through the red line and leave a small hole at the bottom of the bag lining.
Fold the bag bottom like this and sew on top of it
Make sure not to sew the zipper end here..
On the bag lining, measure about 2.5 inch and sew it
Turn the bag inside out through the small hole on the lining, and close the opening on the bag lining bottom
Tadaaa... here is the outcome.. I put in a wristlet with a swivel clasp to the zipper.
