Fish make up bag for E
The only stipulation from my SIL was that she likes blue. So I started with the fish fabric from Fabric Freedom but then ended up adding a solid purple & variegated pink to compliment the fish.
My modification of reducing the width of the lining by 3/4" is definitely the right thing to do:

As previously the pattern is 'Cosmetic bag' from Quilting in No Time
Then I made a matching purse as girls can never have too many bags or purses:
It is a neat little pattern and I thought the pocket would be good for a bus ticket. I added a line of top stitching just under the zip the same as one the make-up bag as I like to 'hold' the front in place and also a vintage Mother of Pearl button on the popper.
Pattern: Zippy Wallet by noodlehead
The lining has a different construction to that of the make up bag and I prefer it:

Both were well received and Mum has asked for the same for her birthday....
