The doubled pouch
A doubled cosmetic case that you can always bring in your bag
You will need
- - A piece of polar fleece at least cm 52 x 30 (20" x 12")
- - A piece of fabric at least cm 45 x 30 (17.5" x 12") for the lining
- - A piece of Velcro, cm 45 (17.6") long
- - Needle
- - Tacking thread
- - Thread for sewing polar fleece and fabric
- - Scissors or rotary cutters
- - Quilter ruler or tape measure
- - A coloured string
Cut out one rectangle from the polar fleece, it should be cm 32 x 30 (12.48 x 12").
Cut out a square from the remaining polar fleece, its side should be cm 20 (7.8").
Cut out a rectangle from the fabric, it should be cm 28 x 30 (10.92" x 12").
Cut out a second rectangle from the remaining fabric, it should be cm 17 x 20 (6.63" x 7.8").
Cut Velcro into three pieces: 21 cm(8.2"), 13 cm (5.1"), 11 cm (4.3").
Prepare the lining of every pouch. Fold in half every rectangle you've cut from the fabric in order to have the right sides together. Tack and then stitch. Everything is sewn at a 1/2" (1 cm) seam allowance. Remove the tackings.
Make the same steps with the rectangle and the square you've cut from the polar fleece but remember at first to tack and sew the Velcro piece 11 cm (4.3") long on the outside. This piece of Velcro is necessary to join the two pouches. Look at the photo for more details. Turn over every piece.
Now you have all the pieces for the outside and the lining.
Insert every lining inside its rectangle of polar fleece. Fold top of each lining inside in order to pair it with the top of the outside. Tack. Then tack the Velcro that is necessary to close every pouch inside (21 cm-8.2" and 13 cm-5.1"). Crisp litghly the corner as you can see in the photo. Sew with close stitches. Then remove all tackings.
Cover the stitches outside with a coloured string. Look at the photo for more details.
