A trio of nesting zipper pouches with curved tops. Check out the super-neat zipper ends, front and back. You’ll learn how to make yours look this perfect too! Now comes with an additional pattern for the diagonal sunset design too.


Introducing the UPDATED Posh Makeup Bag Trio! The pattern is updated and refreshed for this year to include the Sunset Posh Add-On (extra diagonal pattern pieces) and to include an additional large format (size A0) to be printed at a local print shop so you don’t have to tape pieces! The regular pattern pieces are still included to print at home.

This three piece set features beautifully curved tops and they make the perfect gift set, as they nest. This set is very versatile and can be made from quilting cotton, vinyl and cork fabric. The pattern is written for boxed bottoms but can also be made to be flat pouches. Add a wristlet strap and it makes the perfect date night bag!

Skill level:
This pattern is for the Confident Beginner. You’ll need to know how to install zippers and sew a curve.
