I have been learning slowly how to sew. My first bag project was utter failure so I decided to make one up as I went along. I didn't have a bag for my makeup so I figured that was a good place to start. The pockets aren't quite right and one is too high and one piece of velcro ended up very crooked but I like it. It does its job and is cute. Smiley And it means I finished something.

Nice! Did you use a pattern?
I didn't even notice the crooked velcro until you mentioned it!

Thanks! The closest thing I got to a pattern was using a normal piece of paper as a guideline to make sure I cut all four pieces of fabric the same size.

WOW!  Great job!  I'm humbled by your pockets.  Seriously.  Humbled.  Especially the multi-ones and the blush one - very well done!

You did a great job!  Sewing can be a lot of trial and error, I've been sewing for 35 years (wow I am old) and still make mistakes!!  It's a great make up bag!
