Finally, to complete the ensemble of travel bags I have made a quilted cosmetics/toilet bag. This is made to my own design – an “off the cuff, cut out and stitch” project.
Using a small piece of the Black background, tulip printed cotton fabric I quilted a lattice design. I used a plain Black zip in the top which came from my stash and usefully already had a ring pull attached. I have added a tab at one end of the zip but now I realise that I should have added another at the other end! (A lesson learned for next time)
I used a standard construction method for the base and corners, there is a plain lining which conceals all the raw edges and seam allowances. The bag measures approximately 10” across the base, 7” at the top and is 8” deep. Like Goldilocks and the 3 bears, this is just the right size for my toiletries.
