Project 3 of my sewing course was to make a makeup bag lined with vinyl so it would be easy to clean. The materials called for vintage linens which I have plenty of thanks to my great-great and my great grandmothers.In fact, I have so much vintage linen I really need a separate dresser for it! So, I decided to use this pillow case that I have had for a while. I love the pillow case because it has a swan embroidered on it. I wonder who stitched it on and now much time it took. I imagine one of the great's sitting in a rocking chair on their front porch sipping tea while they are stitching. I have no idea if that is really what happened but it sounds good for now. Since I just had just one pillow case I thought it would be perfect to use since it does not have a partner. So, I present my vintage linen makeup bag!
I used striped fabric that I had for the interior because the colors matched the stitching well. I like how the outer fabric is thin and you can see the stripes from the interior fabric through it.
I have never sewed with vinyl before but it was pretty easy. This course is so much fun!
