Barrel-Shaped Cosmetics Bag – Simplicity 2600

         2600 pattern envelope front   2600 line drawing

I am making each of the items featured in this pattern. Previously I posted details of the weekender bag and now I have completed the barrel-shaped cosmetics bag which is item D of the package.  

Again there was quilting to be worked on the Tulip-printed quilting cotton fabric bought from New Threads, Weyhill Fairground. The ends of the barrel are in the complimentary Lime Green fabric, also quilted. I used some more red piping and a red zip.

On completion I have discovered that for my particular purposes this bag is rather small. I will check out how much surplus fabric I have once I have cut out the tote bag (view B) and the jewellery roll (view C) in the hope that I can make another bag that is large enough for all my toiletries.
