I love both bags, the second is so pretty, but I like the shape of the first one also. Maybe you could just sew the lining fabric to the outter fabric before you put the purse together. So the lining wouldn't be a seperate liner, just nice fabric inside. I don't know, if you still wanted to make the first one, might be faster. Just use thin interfacing (sp?) to stick together. Thats just what I used to do to make quick little bags.
Thank you for the instructions though, they are great.

Thanks Starwings20.  Thank you for your kind words.  I used iron on interfacing.  I ended up just overlocking the raw edges and with the interfacing inside, it is kind of a lining.

Dejavugirl:  I think you might be right in the "clean finish" thing.  I used an old cosmetic bag as a pattern, and when I pulled it apart, the seams had binding covering them.

Cyndiq:  your question about the embroidery, it is actually the fabric.  I do have an embroidery machine also, but it would be too time consuming to embroider it onto the fabric - you know what i'm talking about  Grin Grin

I will work on a tutorial for the second bag.  I PM'd the moderator and she suggested if it was a different type of cosmetic bag that I put it in a new thread, so keep an eye out!!

Mmmold thread haha.

I tried out this tute a couple of times, the first it was umm.. "Different" (I blame the rubbish tension on my machine Tongue ) and the second I used interfacing and it again came out "different" (I blamed this on not curving the edges - I just used a rectangle)

 
See, the edges are... Dodgy to say the least. but that's what you get when you don't follow the tute or use decent fabric I guess  Wink I'm not quite sure what you meant by "finish the edges" - I just sewed the zipper sides to the zipper right-sides together, same with the side squares, which gave a nice seam. I will also give it a go sewing in a lining (Must be easier to sew it in all at once, instead of seperately)

Anywho, that's my (belated) two cents I guess.

I'll shut up now, haha.

Ooh i like the top rounded one the best, even if there is no lining. It's a makeup bag, right? Who cares about the inside?!

All it takes is a new bag to make a girl smile, and one smile can change the world.

Well most makeup bags get horribly dirty inside!  A wipeable lining would be more practical, otherwise the fabric might get spoilt.

I overlocked the edges (or you could zig zag) - just to stop the edges from fraying.  Wink
