Bridal Set – 8 Make-up Bags

18 May

Scope of the Project

8 Make-up Bags, each unique and monogrammed. I gave Erin full run of this project and directed her to several resources that have fabric samples such as my Flickr account, my sold items on Etsy, as well as my current shop inventory for ideas. She mentioned that they were all lovely and would have a hard time choosing especially since not all my fabrics are listed. She wondered if I could help her decide. So Erin had the idea of giving me a color and a few words about each girls personality. This approach was spot on!

Jennie “J” Favorite color: Pink; Personality: Stylish, trendy, girly but still sophisticated
Jen “J” Favorite color: light blues; Personality: Super preppy, stylish
Barbara “B” Favorite color: Peacock shades (teal, yellow, purple) Personality: Vintage, old soul
Katy “K” ” Favorite color: Purple Personality: Bold patterns, chic and fashionable
Ashley “A” Favorite color: Red; Personality: Outgoing, trendy, vibrant. Lives in San Francisco
Katie “K” Favorite color: Green; Personality: Simple elegance, not trendy
Leslie “L” Favorite color: Green; Personality: Vintage, obsessed, literally, with the color green. Definitely green patterns inside and out
Katie “K” Favorite color: Pink; Personality: Super, super girly, fun, young. Think bubble gum pink

So I went back with this:

1) Jennie – Pink & Trendy – fuchsia pink, mod design

2) Jen – light blue & preppy – sateen plaid

3) Barbara – Peacock Vintage – peacock pattern in a 1950′s fabric

4) Katy – purple & bold – lavender mod design

5) Ashley – red & trendy – red damask

6) Katie – green elegant – soft green and yellow charming floral

7) Leslie – green & vintage – green on green floral very retro design

8. Katie – pink bubblegum fun – the whales! I’ll focus on the pink portion but so fun!!

I sent her a pic of the fabrics and we only changed the first because of a recent conversation she had with Jennie. We changed it to Champagne! Perhaps this is toast to the next chapter in her life.

Final Result

Here are the pictures of the makeup bags. I hope you enjoy the vibrant colors! It is so fantastic to have so many lovely friends all with unique personalities, who are all bridesmaids in this wedding, and all have Erin in their lives.  Thank you Erin for allowing The Itty Bitty Bag Company to be a part of your special day.

My best, Jen

      You are too sweet. The red/white damask has been a favorite. I only have a small piece left. I am happy to watch my fabric inventory dwindle down but I need to dwindle it more before I buy any new fabric.
