This is a long long ago example (and not the best one) of a second pull -- hard to go through all those files to find one of the better ones.
The first picture is of my design wall with the 30 or so "cosmetic bags" that I made this week while binge watching the very old BBC Jane Austen series -- acting terrible but keeps closely to the original books.
This is a closeup of one of my favorites. Each bag is lined and is approximately 8 inches wide and 5 inches in height. They all have fusible fleece giving them some oomph.
I have wanted to do something with the marbled fabrics besides using it in clothing (which I have done successfully). They get lost in a quilt although some pieces could easily be almost stand alone. It is a very serendipitous process (doing the marbling) and you really don't know what you will get many times. I have been collecting quilt patterns that feature nice fabric but somehow it just didn't feel right. I have dutifully brought these pieces down with me (about a third of my stash of marbled fabrics) hoping I would find inspiration. A friend used some of these fabrics to make lovely notebook holders which she gifted to my school group of online friends. It was a great use of the fabric.
Here are three more closeups. They are fairly easy to make. I will put together a post on that as well for later!
I have a ton of 7 inch zippers that I bought years ago when making a lot of my own clothes. Even back then I didn't use 7 inch zippers so not sure why I have so many (I used 9 inch zippers for skirts). I have ordered a bunch of zipper pulls onto which you could add some sort of adornment. Once I get these, I will see what seems right. I have used thin ribbon in the past on the zipper pulls and that works well. We shall see!
