Sew Pretty

I bought the Sew Pretty Homestyle book recently. There are so many gorgeous little projects in this book. Cute bags, makeup bags and fabric roses..




Here is my attempt at a makeup bag. I haven't put in as much effort as the beautiful embroidered bags in the book.. maybe one day when I have more TIME.
