Description of work:

Fabric for each individual cosmetic bag used different and with a companion. It came from its own taste. In some cases, for the lining took the fabric of another, but with the color combination with the main tissue of the cosmetic bag. For finishing used either a contrasting fabric or decorative braid. In addition, in the course went – sintepon, glue, lock detachable.

First, a blank will be made in the form of a cosmetic bag, along which you will cut out the details of the bottom and the lid. To make the cosmetic bag keep the shape, it is better to prepare a frame from the cardboard: the bottom and the lid; from the paper, cut out for the frame a rectangle with a width equal to the circumference of the cosmetic bag and a height equal to the height of the cosmetic bag (height is taken without taking into account the height of the sides of the cover of the cosmetic bag) + ca. 2 cm in length for the overlap. The rectangle is closed in a ring and fastened with an adhesive tape.

Then it is necessary to mark out the details on the fabric of the primary cosmetic color (facial side of the cosmetic bag) with the allowance of 1.5 cm for the seams:

– 1 piece of bottom and cover;

– rectangular part for the main part of the cosmetic case;

– the board for the lid (I did in height from 1.5 cm to 3 cm in height, depending on the size of the cosmetic bag);

– part of the handle that is sewn to the lid;

– two parts for securing the lock from the back of the cosmetic bag;

– stripes (their number depends on the number of pockets inside the cosmetic bag) – they will be used as a finishing tape for contrasting colors for pockets (unless a pre-purchased decorative tape is used).

On the details lines of sewing of a finishing tape of contrasting color are outlined: on a cover and on the basic part of the case of a cosmetic bag. In addition, on the lid details, there are places where the handle is sewn, and on the bottom part – lines for squeezing the part.

– rectangular part for the main part of the cosmetic case;

– the side for the lid;

– pockets (I usually do 3 pockets in one cosmetic bag);

– stripes (their size depends on the size of the cosmetic bag: circumference and height) – they will be used as a finishing tape for a contrasting color for the cover of the cosmetic bag and the main part of its body (if no pre-purchased decorative tape is used).

Further, on the parts (the bottom, the lid, the side of the lid and the main part of the lid body), the places for the quilting are marked.
