For the LOVE of Make-up...

What girl doesn't love an adorable make-up bag
{or really any kind of bag, satchel, tote, carry-all, etc.}

I know I do!
When I came across my friend Suzanne's blog A New Creation
and saw her awesome tutorial for a cute "boxy" pouch,
I wanted to make one asap!
{but since she is so sweet, she beat me to it and gave me one as a birthday gift!}

So I decided to try my hand at making one a little bigger
to use as a make-up bag!

Update: Now available in my Etsy Shop

Make-up Happy,


  1. It looks so good! I will have to try the Heat n' Bond on my next one. Is that what you use for the neck tie onesies too?

  2. Loving this fun find!!! It's so fresh and girly! Thank you oh so very much for linking your creations up at my party today! Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
