I made this little makeup bag as a birthday present for a very dear friend of mine. And though technically this isn't leftover fabric, it's a project that requires less than half a metre of fabric that could easily have come from my leftover stash.
Since the makeup bag is a present, I wanted to use a special fabric so I picked some embroidered / sequined tulle and some cotton sateen.
This little bag couldn't be easier to make. I cut four rectangles cca. 20 x 15 cm. Layered the tulle on the outer two rectangles and zig zag stitched in place.
I interlined it with some leftover purple fleece. I decided to make a tiny pocket on the lining and then I sewed the lining pieces separately.
I attached the zipper to the outer pieces of the bag and sewed the edges together.
The lining was hand sewed onto the zipper. And that's it.
The finished make up bag measures approximately 18 x 12 cm and could easily serve as an evening bag as well.
