Timeless Mediterranean Wristlets ~ Make-up Bags

I got a fat quarter pack of five in the Timeless Mediterranean fabric line.  I also got the last of the yardage off a bolt.  I decided to use it to make some wristlets/make-up bags.  I'm calling them "Becca Wristlets".

You can find them under the "Totes and Bags" section of my shop.

I would have had 12 "Becca Wristlets" but it took me a few tries to get it how I wanted it to turn out. Three girls are now the proud owners of a "rejected" wristlet!

At first they were going to be plain but then I decided to use some of the scraps to applique an accent strip across the front with a fancy stitch setting on my sewing machine.  I think it really sets it off nicely.

Somehow I missed that string hanging onto the side of the lining.  There is a layer of fusible interfacing sandwiched between the outside fabric and the lining.

As you can see each bag has a zipper to keep your goodies nice and safe.

These bags would be great for make-up or to grab a few things for a quick trip.  Wallet, cell phone, sunglasses, lip gloss, etc.  They measure approx. 8.5" X 6".

The above picture shows them ALL DONE... 

I also have another fat quarter pack in "Seaglass".  I'm trying to decide if I want to make more wristlets or maybe some "Stephanie Totes".

  4. These are adorable! I used the same fabric (the fat quarter pack and a jellyroll) to make a valance and quilted cover for my knitting machine. I decorated my craft room using those colors as my inspiration.
