After the Cosmo Bag debacle I bravely decided to try another pattern in Amy Butler's Style Stitches book. I had to redeem myself, and I had a gift to make for a friend. I used some of Violet Craft's Peacock Lane and some of my hoarded Tula Pink Neptune. Loving the pink and black together, very 80's feeling.
My pictures are a funny color, it was actually really sunny outside, but these are the bags I made.
I made the "mini" size and the "medium" size. The bags I use the most are one for pencils and eyeliners and such and the other to hold all of my other makeup. I was very happy with the sizes I chose.
I used more of the upcycled sheets I got on Etsy for the insides. They open up nice and wide, and I like to use light colors on the inside of bags so you can see what's inside. I found that if you use dark colors it's hard to find stuff at the bottom of the bags.
I am SUPER happy with the way these came out. The patterns were very well written, with lots of pictures that were helpful. These I would agree, were "Easy". I would guess they took me about 2 1/2 hours to make, including cutting time.
