Hello lovelies,

We are delighted to announce our next  Tutorial Tuesday. All our Tutorial Tuesday projects have been chosen to be super-fast, super-easy, super-fun and a great way to use up your scraps. Our first Tutorial Tuesday of 2023 is to make the Grace Cosmetic Bag.

Our Grace Cosmetic Bag was designed as the first project and full kit in our Sew Happy Sewing Subscription. Grace is an elegant cosmetic bag featuring two triangular exterior pockets which are made from cork fabric. The pockets are stylish and perfect for easy access to lipstick, eye/lip liner or even pretty make-up brushes. Grace features a zip top and deep boxed bottom and makes this the perfect project to practice or start zipper installation and sewing with cork.

We have several options to get your hands on the pattern or kit:

  1. Download a copy of the PDF pattern, buy the pattern on its own, or buy the full kit with the Pattern and full Pre-recorded tutorial here 

Once you have your pattern, join me live on Tuesday 7th February at 1pm on our Living In Loveliness Facebook page  you can find the event here . Facebook is great for reminding us when events are happening so don’t forget to click ‘attending’ on the event here to watch the live tutorial. As soon as the tutorial has ended, we will update the link to take you straight to the tutorial so you can re-watch if you wish.
