    Thanks to all your help in finding a way to make the lining to a cosmetic bag water resistant, I have now finished my daughters Tree Frog cosmetic bag. Tomorrow it will be posted off to New Zealand. I think it turned out rather well. The iron on vinyl worked well, although it looks crinkley from being bunched up when I turned the bag inside out to finish it.

    Once again, you guys have come through when I needed you. Thanks a bunch!

    Here are some pics of it.

    Thank you. I am just learning to embroider with my machine and when she asked for a bag to carry cosmetics in when she goes to class, I thought this would be just perfect! Next is a little pencil type bag with a Kiwi bird on it.

    Great job. If you lined it with fabric and added a side handle it would make a great wristlet which everyone seems to be selling now:)

    sewnsewer2 - I hadn't heard of iron on vinyl either until AtHomeSewing told me about it. It worked great.

    Ladybug - You are right, it would. Hmmm.....
    Actuallly I did line it, just "vinylized" (just made the word up) the lining .
    But if I left the vinyl off, it would be a nice wristlet. Good idea.

    Thanks, got my new Bernina in June and after seeing some of the designs that the embroidery module could do in my owners manual, I went back and got a real great price on one. I am slowly learning the intricacies of the machine embroidery world :-) Especially after I make a dumb mistake!

    Not at all!

    http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0

    I adapted it so I could use the panel with the frog, but otherwise stuck with the pattern.

    sewnsewer2 posted pics of the one she made from this pattern in July with the URL for the pattern, so I have her to thank for finding the pattern for this great bag.

    Enjoy!

    It looks great!

    I have a cosmetic bag that I've been using for nearly 15 years, and it's really starting to show its age. I'm really glad you posted this to give me some ideas of how I could make myself a replacement bag!

    Cute bag! Was that vinyl difficult to sew, or did it handle like "regular fabric"?

    Martina,

    I was surprised at how easy it sewed. It is a lightweight vinyl and since I was sewing with the right/vinyl sides together, it didn't stick to the bed of my machine. It actually stitched rather like heavily starched fabric.
