Cosmetic Bag Sewing Pattern Today I’m going to share with you a curved top cosmetic bag sewing pattern that would make a great Christmas gift for a teenager on your list (it would also be pretty fun to make for an adult too!). I’m the mom of 3 teenagers who loves to sew, I will readily admit that the day they didn’t want me to make them dresses for church anymore was a sad one for me. I wasn’t quite ready to stop creating things for them and soon realized that instead of not sewing for them anymore I just needed to alter what I was making. Now I feel pretty passionately about the subject, why just give that newborn baby a handmade quilt? The pouch is made from wool, but you can also use cotton, if you use wool just make sure it’s lightweight. If you’d like to make one too, here’s what you’ll need (includes affiliate links): All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise noted. From the pattern piece cut: 2 pieces for pouch front 2 pieces for pouch lining 2 pieces of flex foam 2 pieces of shape flex Clip the curve. Related
