Lovely quick-sew gifts to make for daughters, sisters, moms, friends, teachers, hostesses or even yourself! Consider adding a layer of clear plastic to the lining if yours are going to see some heavy-duty makeup use.
And as with anything handmade, finishing details are the icing on the cake and can be whatever you want them to be. A few simple ideas are shown in the photos here, but you can be creative with patchwork, applique, embroidery, etc.
