when your daughter gets into makeup ...

Remember this cosmetic bag for my then 14 year old who when on a trip?

Well little sister who is now 14 is going on a trip today - not alone, but she's discovered the teenage joys of makeup and ... well ... she finally allowed me to make a cosmetic bag for her too. :). Lucky for her that her mama just so happens to have designed some fabric that she likes (sort of ... I may have nudged her in this direction, but can you blame me?)

Anyhow, she didn't give me as many rules as her sister did, but she wasn't all that flexible either.  No pink, no flowers, no top stitching, no trim ... the lace tab and leather label were hard sells.  And the inside is a plain linen so not much so show there.

But I think it turned out super cute and it put a really big smile on her face.  I even got a hug, which is all the payment I need from her. ;)

I love my girls.  And my fabric stash.

This is so cute! I've been reading here for a while, but I don't think I have ever commented before. One thing I wanted to ask you: where do you find those cute pins with the heart-shaped heads? Love those!

Barbara H. (who commented), here is a site that sells those pins. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop/detail/71829/msqc/msqc/msqc-heart-pins
Missouri Star Quilt Co. has great service, too. I love ordering from them.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the turquoise/aqua color you have chosen in this line. It is killer! Super cute bag. I think your daughter should have gone with the top stitching but I totally know how teenagers are. =) You certainly deserved a big hug!

Kristyne this little bag is so precious! I am in love with your new fabrics and I can't wait to get my hands on some.

Love it Kristen. I think things become even more special when they are teenagers, and they 'sort of' like what you make for them. Google translate says the label says 'There is no good party without a tomorrow' lol. I guess that's true...xAli

How lovely! Would you please share a tutorial on how to make one? I think it's really super cute and would love to make one for my own daughter 💖

We love our girls.
I remember the one you made for your older daughter. This one is very sweet.
My older daughter was very "utilitarian" in her teens, and my younger was "Princess Priss Light" like me.
Now they are both mommas and I am the gramma.
Life is good, isn't it?
Thank you for sharing your adorable creations and of course your fabrics.
