Thank you!
The pictures very kindly hide many of my mistakes...
It took me maybe two hours, possibly more. The most annoying part was cutting everything out.

And how I finished my seams...hmm, well, considering I'm not entirely sure what that would entail, I think my response has to be...I didn't. But if it's the kind of stitches, it was the zigzag one, because someone said somewhere that it should keep it from fraying.

I love both of them! Definitely have to try the first one. I would still love a tut for the second one, if you get a chance  Smiley

I'd love to see a tutorial for the second cosmetic bag, also. I think it's really awesome. I've been looking for a pattern for a bag like that for a very long time. Smiley

Ooo.. I first saw this post and saw the first tute. LOVED it, great design, but I was a LEETLE put off by the lack of lining. I figured, heck, I could do it, and share my idea with the worrld. But... I never figured it out. :[

Then, just now, I saw your first page with the pic of your second bag and instantly fell in lovee. I just embroidered a really fabbity-fab robot design (if I do say so myself.) and that bag would be perfect for showcasing it! I was gonna make it into the first bag you showed but I don't think I placed the embroidery right so I'd have to piece other crap together to get the right size to make the body piece, blah blah blah.

So, basically what I'm saying is that, if it's not a problem, could you MAAAYBE whip up a piping hot tute for us Craftsters? I know I'm not the only one who would enjoy it. Thanks so much for the first tute!

this is a fantastic bag, much too nice to put makeup in. the tutorial is equally as good as the bag is and now I just need enough time to put it all together. If I'd stay off of craftster for a day or two I might just get something done, but I might miss something.

I have finally managed to write the other tutorial for the triangular cosmetic bag.  Here is the link (thanks for being patient!!):

Thanks so much for this tutorial! This was the first "Craftster" project I tried, and I am so happy with how it came out.

This first image was my practice bag, since I was pretty much guaranteed to screw it up. It turned out very nice, though, and I was bummed I just used an old sheet to make it! (The dollar is there to give you an idea of size, BTW).




I wanted the next one I made to be a bit longer, so I just added a couple of inches of length to it. It could hypothetically be a pencil case now. The lining even looks awesome, except for my amateurish slip-stitching.










Thanks again for the stupendous tutorial!
