Little muslin bag

Sew a cosmetic bag with ruffle

A cosmetic bag is a cosmetic bag. Sometime bigger, sometimes smaller – essentially it’s just plain and unremarkable. The main thing is that it’s practical!

I sewed by new cosmetic bag from muslin remnants.

Originally I intended it just as a place to keep my toothbrush etc, but the ruffle turned the cosmetic bag into a little beautiful little pouch! 

Muslin gives the bag a sunny charm and that holiday feeling! Thanks to the ruffle, it is super playful and girly.

I love this summery boho look! My small muslin pouch is bound to accompany me to the beach or restaurant as well.

Do you fancy trying something new?

Today I’m going to show you how you can turn a simple cosmetic bag into a respectable everyday bag or even a pretty clutch.

Zip length with both zipper tabs: 20cm

SEWING

Volume fleece

Volume fleece is not ironed, but stitched together with the outer fabric by hand. Alternatively you can use an overlocker for this.

If you’re using the machine, make sure that the sewing foot pressure is not too high, otherwise the muslin fabric will be “flattened out” by the overlocker and will change size.

Zip

For a neat finish, I recommend that you include zipper tabs for the ends of the zip. There are definitely several methods of doing this, but I prefer this one here, where the end pieces are edged with the same fabric. This means that you get a neat finish once you’ve turned it and you still have enough room to sew to the side.

Sewing in the zip: Pin the zip to the top edge of the outer fabric, right sides together, and sew. Repeat on the other side.

Ruffle

Fold the long fabric strips lengthwise, right sides together, then top stitch the short fabric sides, turn right side out and shape the edges.

R

Gather up the ruffle along the length of the semi-circular fabric edge of the pattern piece and pin to the pattern piece. Make sure that the ruffle is positioned just below the seam of the zip. Sew on the ruffle on the short edge.

Open the zip. The bag will later be turned over through the opening.

Unfold the fabric pieces so that both outer fabric pieces and the two lining pieces are both right side to right side.

Mark an opening in the bottom of the bag (lining).

Sew all round, the width of the presser foot. Turn the bag; close the opening. Finished!
