Fancy making a roomy make up bag pouch to show off some fave fabric prints? We just LOVE a make up bag with an accent fabric – it’s a really easy way to add sprinkling of extra interest to your project.
This make up bag is a really great size. The finished bag ends up approx 28cm wide & 17cm deep… add to that a flat bottom & the fact that zip isn’t sewn into the side seams means the pouch is BIG! So you can fit loads of your make up or toiletries inside. Or use it for craft supplies!

The handle makes it easy to escape to your favourite spot. And there is no risk of corner folding savagery… there’s a bookmark too!
You have probably noticed our slight obsession with fusible woven interlining, we use it in lots of our tutorial projects. But it’s easy to see why: check out the ‘spring’ in the fabrics above – the fabric with interlining sits higher and rolls into a smoother curve.
