Breast cancer, for some, is a memory they live with daily, whether the battle was personal or one fought by a loved one. It is a womanly cause we can all get behind. Sometimes a gentle reminder is a great way for us to remember the warriors of this disease, and this cosmetic bag is a great, stylish way to do that! Start by downloading the Cosmetic Bag instructions.

Complete steps 1 and 2.


Pin the zipper to the bag fabric right sides together and matching the raw edges.

When moving on to step 3, complete as directed, except flip the lining so the right side is facing up.


Match the wrong side of the lining to the zipper.

Continue through the directions and stop at step 7. Using a water-soluble marking pen, draw a ribbon on the bag fabric.


Draw a ribbon on your bag fabric with a water-soluble marking pen.

Stitch around the ribbon on your drawn line through the bag fabric and lining.


Stitch on the drawn line, and cut just inside of the stitching through the bag fabric only.

Cut slightly inside your stitching but through your bag fabric only, not through your lining. Finish the bag as directed and enjoy!


Finish the bag as instructed.
