Iron on the interfacing material on the polyester fabric, then pin the lining fabric and sew the three layers together, make a seam every 15 - 20 cm. Then make a zipper bag as you see on the foto and sew it on.
See the tutorial for zipper bags:
If you like, add a hook on a small ribbon on the side of the zipper pocket.
Now you can make a little bag for the hook - to close with a small piece of adhesive band, which you sew on or you can also use a pressure button.
Prepare the transparent foil, cut it into three pieces, one should have app. 30 cm width and 20 cm length.
Sew a bias binding on both sides of the width --> foto, make all three foil bags with the bias at the ends. It is easier to continue sewing the foil.
Fold th bias of one end and sew the foil app. 10 cms away from the lower edge. If you have use a plastic foot.
Sew on the zipper on the other end of the foil, don´t forget to fold the bias before.
Now pin the other side of the zipper on the fabric, app 13 cm away from the first seam and sew it.
Prepare the next foil bag and pin it after 5 cm distance to the zipper of the first foil bag. And again repeat it with the third foil bag. On every foil bag set a small pleat --> it will give you more rom for your cosmetics.
Then trimm the sides with a small ribbon, I used 3 cm of the lining fabric, but you can also use bias or another ribbon.
Now fold both small sides of the cosmetic case and make a seam --> foto above.
Prepare small bands for the oval metal rings - they are for the bag handle - and fix them one on each side. On the upper edge insert an eyelet in the middle - it is for the hook.
Cut the elastic band into two pieces, fold each, close each with a seam, pin each on the back side of the cosmetic case and sew them on.
If you like make a bag handle of the cotton ribbon with carabiners fixed on each end.
You can also sew on two pressure buttons - one on each side - to close the hanging up cosmetic case properly.
Enjoy the cruise !
