I made use of my new embroidery machine for Christmas gifts. I made this make up bag for my niece.
I got the fabric in the quilting department at Joanns and used a make up bag that I have as a pattern template. My machine allows me to use any regular computer font for lettering so I used the curls font for the name.
I used the same fabric for a purse for my other niece. I made the purse using Simplicity 2396. I had to extend the pink section about 2 inches to make room for the name but the pattern was pretty easy.
I love the colors in the print fabric.
After seeing the make up bag, my daughter wanted one so after Christmas I made her one also.
I will have a couple more embroidery gifts in upcoming posts. I have also been teaching myself how to crochet. My mom is a wizard at it but I have been limping along so I may (or may not) post a couple things I have done.
Hope you have a crafty week!
