Michael Miller Belle Rose Laminated Wash Bag


Here's a laminated wash bag that I made for Flicky for Christmas - don't you just love this Michael Miller Belle Rose laminate?  I had to fussy cut it very carefully so the birds on the print don't show - one thing Flicky will never be is an ornithologist!



I lined the washbag with the same laminate too - great for easy wipe clean.







I think Flicky liked it - well it's gone back to uni with her which is always a good sign :D


My next class teaching in Manhattan is coming up at The City Quilter at the end of June 2014, if you're visiting NYC and fancy a bit of sewing do come and join us - contact the store to register.

28 June 2014 - 11 am to 5 pm

Tired of having a grubby cosmetic bag?  Make yourself a new laminated boxy zipper bag with an easy to wipe-clean laminated interior too.  No pattern required and size can be adapted from make-up to toiletries bag.  We'll even make a matching laminated tissue case.
Open to confident beginners who know how to use a rotary cutter and sewing machine - knowing how to insert a zipper is an advantage but by no means essential as we'll cover it in class.

Class Price - $70.00



If you live in the greater New York area or are making a quick visit to the Big Apple, why not join in one of my classes?  You can find details of all Spring 2015 classes I'm teaching via the 'My Classes' link in the sidebar or by clicking the link button below.

  1. Gorgeous! Love the fact its lined as well, otherwise the inside gets ruined by make up!

  6. Very pretty- that fabric deserves to be fussy cut. I just made a quilt with lots of fussy cuts and my husband thinks that is the such a funny phrase,

    1. Go for it Kathy, they're just like fabric if you use a teflon sewing foot - alternatively put a piece of tissue paper/backing parchment between the laminate side and the sewing machine bed/foot so it doesn't stick, you just tear the paper away afterwards. :D

    1. Use them just like fabric Lorna. Best to use a teflon sewing foot but if you don't have one or don't want to invest just yet then a piece of tissue paper/backing parchment between the laminate side and the sewing machine bed/foot stops it sticking then you tear the paper away afterwards. :D

  18. good way to see your beautiful fabric every day. I like the shape and way the zipper opens it up all the way.

  20. It looks great, Chrissie. I have some laminated cotton waiting very patiently to be used, I may have to make one myself. Thanks for linking up.

  21. too cute! It's so funny that you mention making sure the birds don't show- I think I would have to do just the opposite. I've been really loving birds lately. ha!

    Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

    1. I didn't use a pattern Nellie, it's my own but I am teaching a class on making them along with matching tissue covers at The City Quilter on Saturday, 28 June (it'll be listed in the next class schedule which isn't out just yet). :D
