hiya,

i used this tutorial for my cosmetic bag: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0

it's a present for my colleague who knitted a scarf for me when i was home sick with torn ligaments (i'm not at home anymore but still hobbling about...). so i thought i had to sew a little something for her in return.

this is it:



it's strongly inspired by a bag i did for a friend's birthday (and hey, i still did have a lot of fabric and ribbon left Wink ). you'll notice the likeness Smiley and believe me, i'm really good at doing bows now  Grin



what do you think?

i bought the fabric at ikea Smiley they have very nice decorative fabrics for reasonable prices! perfect for sewing bags. have to go hunting there again soon  Grin
i had a look at the website of ikea us - they have the same fabric there too. it's called "patricia": http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00124581

It's nice, it's like some bag, where it comes with a small cosmetic bag inside the bigger bag.

I knew I found the fabric familiar! Any tips on doing nice bows? Mine is always crooked.  Grin

I love this - and have a ton of that fabric. Do you have a pattern (or could you point me in the right direction) for the larger bag? It is so perfect!
