Speaking of bags, have you been following along with the other posts for Travel Handmade? Today's category was Cosmetic Bags! I already have a make-up roll up (which Erin reviewed!), but did not have a toiletry style bag! Jana made an awesome bag using Skip to My Lou's Boxy Cosmetic Bag Tutorial, and I knew I had to make one too! I used two prints from Erin McMorris's Weekends, Saturday in butter for the exterior and laminate Saturday in pink for the interior. I haven't sewn much with laminate, but it actually went really smoothly! I used hair clips instead of pins for securing, since pins leave holes in the laminate. Like Jana, I added a handle, mine was 10". I also added fusible fleece to the exterior to give it a little extra body.
The shop has never been more full of vintage sheet goodness! There are a whopping 90 items listed! I've added loads of sheets and pillowcases this week! And next week I'll be (hopefully!) adding charm packs and a few new kits! :)
