Pleated Cosmetics Bag Pattern with Spoonflower Fabric

Posted by on


Have you ever tried to design your own fabric? It's hard! Very hard. I'm still learning about fabric color theory. I'm certainly no graphic designer, so I started out with some easier patterns in spots and stripes. I learned how to make repeating patterns in Photoshop and used a pre-designed color palette from Design Seeds.
But rather than design just a plain piece of fabric, I wanted to design it as a pre-filled pattern piece. So the design I drew for the fabric incorporated the pattern pieces and then I filled them with the repeating design. So now I have all the fabric I need to complete 3 different pleated cosmetics bags, including the lining and some embellishments – all on the same single piece of fabric. Waste = zero. Happiness = 100%.
