Lavender Cosmetic Tote by Blue Calla Sewing Patterns (Printed Paper Pattern)

The Lavender cosmetic tote comes in 2 sizes. It has a top carry handle and a flap closure with zippers on both sides as well as a magnetic snap fastener. You can use laminated cotton instead of quilting cotton to make a waterproof lining for a cosmetic bag.
