COSMETIC BAG WITH SHARPLY CONTRASTING FABRIC MAKES A HUGE IMPACT
In today’s post, we’re taking a look at the use of a cosmetic bag that makes use of a contrasting fabric to create an impactful look.
Cosmetic bag concept: contrasting fabric
When we started this design, it was a contrasting fabric that was going to be the primary feature. The bag itself wasn’t going to be that unusual. An extra-large zipper pouch to hold all of a ladies’ essentials.
What was the big question was WHICH contrasting fabric would give the right look.
I don’t like to copy but I often prowl through the internet to get inspiration for my designs. Why recreate the wheel when you see something that works, simply adapt it to fit your style. Your LIFE. Your WAY.
Finding this photo made me realize that I had the perfect fabric right in my studio. A black and off-white ticking. My inspiration came from Pottery Barn.
With the exact play on colors that I was looking to make, in addition to the gold details that are essential in today’s aesthetic, this was a win.
I elected NOT to monogram or personalize in any way as I’m putting this contrasting fabric cosmetic bag on my site for purchase so I decided to add some leather and ribbon touches to make it unique.
Perhaps a polka-dot will come soon too! Cute!
My daughter, Sophie (BySophiaLee.com) has been after me for a while to make a bag with a black leather bottom. This seemed like the perfect opportunity. The big question was what to do for the lining.
I started with a water repellent animal print but in the end, I really liked how all the ticking stripes lined up when carefully constructed. This was the look. You can see the animal print in the mesh pocket.
