Large Cosmetic Bag Pattern: Finished size is approx 10"x7" Great for cosmetics, travel bag for toiletries, diaper and wipes holder, etc.
I used to sell these cosmetic bags here on etsy and they were always a big seller. (I have now stopped selling them to simplify my shop.) I still make these for myself and for gifts for friends and family. Now I am offering my original pattern for sale.
If you can sew a straight line, you can make this large cosmetic bag. I'll guide you through it with my clear and concise explanations. This bag is made completely flat--no difficult curves to stitch around. Included in the pattern are 15 color photos to guide you along step-by-step.
To complete this cosmetic bag you will need: sewing machine, scissors, heavy duty fusible interfacing, fabric, zipper. Precise amounts are given in pattern instructions. (A cutting mat, rotary cutter, and acrylic ruler are optional.)

I do not like the baggy pillow look. I prefer a nicely tailored looking pillow with the pillow form completely filling out the pillow--as seen in all my photos. To get this tailored look you should use NEW high quality pillow forms. If they are older, chances are the polyester stuffing has compressed. Therefore, the nice new covers you purchase from me will not look so nice with floppy old pillow forms inside.
For example, to get the nice tailored look as seen in my photos I make a 20" cover closer to 19" or 19 1/2" finished size. That way your newly purchased 20" pillow form will fill it out nicely. If you have old pillow forms that you really want to use you can always buy a bag of poly stuffing (used for stuffed animals or crafts), cut open one of the seams on the pillow form, then add more stuffing and sew shut.
Bottom line: It's always better to OVER FILL your pillow covers!
As far as down pillow forms go, use a high-quality down pillow form. The cheap ones do not have enough feathers to fill out the pillow cover so it gives a sloppy appearance. To remedy this I often use, for example, a 20" down pillow form (if it's floppy) to fill a 16-18" pillow cover. Voila, a nice fitted look!
Great pillow forms can be found at Wal Mart (gasp!), Joann's Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Crate and Barrell, Pottery Barn, and Amazon.com. I do not make any money on the pillow forms I sell in my store; I sell them only as a convenience to you. However, the shipping is always more than just the cover, so if you live near one of the afore mentioned stores, it's cheaper to buy your own forms and avoid shipping.
If you do choose to buy pillow forms from my shop I will make it nice and fluffy and slightly over filled, as seen in all my photos to make your new pillow covers look PERFECT and PROFESSIONAL. So when buying an 18" cover in my store you simply need to buy the 18" pillow form to go along with it. :)
If this is all confusing, please email with any further questions. I'm always happy to help. Have a great day!!
