Things 198 & 199

I needed a cosmetic bag for some skin care product for a friend’s birthday gift. I pulled out the Liberty Mitsi fabric leftover from my Belcarra blouse. Liberty is beautiful and dreamy, but also expensive. The only way I can make it work in this 365 project of mine is by using every last scrap.

I had a cream-coloured zipper in my stash and the lining is a beautiful yellow cotton from a men’s shirt (thanks, Jim). I added a two-inch gusset so the bag can stand up — always handy for a cosmetic bag.

Then, because I still had some scraps left and I wanted to fill the bag a bit, I made a matching tissue pouch.

I love this set and I’m glad to send it off to a good home.

I still have some scraps left, though they’re mostly pretty small. Maybe it’s time to start a Liberty patchwork quilt.
