In CrossStitcher issue 215 we featured a really cute set of Momiji dolls, which we finished as a trendy shoulder bag. Why not be creative and finish this design as a make-up bag instead? Here are the instructions - so give it a go!
How to make a Momiji dolls make-up bag:
- Cut your stitched design to measure 18x40cm and fray the outer two rows along the top and bottom edges. Place a 30x45cm piece of black fabric vertically on to a flat surface and then position your stitched design about 10cm from the top edge. Pin and machine stitch in place.
- Pin a second piece of 30x45cm fabric on top, and then tack an area measuring 26x41cm around the fabric edges. Machine stitch together, leaving an opening at the bottom end.
- Turn right side out. Hand stitch a ribbon loop in place along the bottom edge and then slip stitch the opening together.
- Place the design face down and then fold and slip stitch together to leave a 7cm flap at the top. Finally, stitch the button in place and you’re finished!
