A Lay Flat Drawstring Make Up Bag

Today, I am sharing my second sewing project, made from the online
 sewing course with Claire at Beautiful Things Craft and Sewing Classes

I joined the Bronze Online Sewing Course back in July,

with the first project, being a door stop which can be found HERE.
As a member of the club, Claire sends you written instructions, a pattern
and a full video tutorial. Having the video tutorial was so handy, as it meant I
could re-wind it at any point to watch again when needed.

Here is my completed bag...
Like my door stop, it's not 100% perfect, but I am really pleased with how
it has turned out, and will definitely be making another two, as my great niece's 
have put in their requests!
  If you're interested in learning to sew, I really recommend you joining Claire's 
online club, she is a great teacher and has some fabulous projects planned.

All the materials were purchased from Geoff's Remnant Shop, Brentwood, Essex.
The outer fabric is Rose & Hubble - Cerise & Lilac Rose on Navy.
I am looking forward to making the last project in the Bronze club, which
is going
to be a sewing machine mat. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
