make-up bags for the wee soap shop

Debbie is taking a table at a charity event in November where she hopes to sell some of her wee soap shop soaps. She asked me if I would make a few wee make-up bags for her to sell which she could put a bar of soap into. We decided that 10 would be a good number to go for so we set about choosing 10 fabrics, 10 linings and 10 zips.

I've finished 6 of them. Here they are closed:

And open so you can see the colour of the linings:

I have 3 ready for me to do the hand-finishing - these are inside out:

And there's one more to make:

I'm not bored with these yet so I can see myself making more of them. Fun times! :o)

  1. They are lovely, and what a brilliant idea to sell them with special little bars of soap. Love the contrasting linings :) xx

  2. You are one busy bee! When you get sewing, it's like an assembly line. Those pouches are all very sweet. I like the lemons one! And those soaps... They look good enough to eat!

  3. A wonderful idea, they'd make great gifts with soap inside. I bet they sell really well.

  7. What beautiful bags, inside and out. I also had to have a nosey at the soaps, was really impressed with both. Hope you make really good sales. Just so that we all know - how much would you charge for the make-up bags?

    1. Thanks, Alison. As for price - I haven't decided. I'm kind of hoping that Debbie will sell them all! :oD

  8. Those are super cute Anne! I know they must be fun to make too -- I love little bags like that for all the little things that get lost in the bottom of my purse!

  9. They are so lovely and is the inside lining a plastic of some sort? Well done and take care.
