Pleated Makeup Bag & Tissue Holder

My sister asked me to sew her up a makeup bag and I happily took on the challenge.  To start off I sent her a few links of different websites on possible makeup bags that she could choose a style from.  Luckily she chose one that was easy enough for me to follow and try out.

I first made one for myself at a trial run before I made one for my sister since I wanted to make her one with a nylon lining for easy cleanup.  I didn't want to waste the remnant nylon I got from the fabric store since the piece wasn't that large.  In addition to making the makeup bags, I also sewed up some tissue holders as well since it looked really simple and it compliments the bags too.  I found both tutorials at the blogsite Skip to My Lou along with some other great crafting tutorials.

So here are my latest creations.
