Vintage embroidery geometric design make up or storage zip up bag.
This makeup bag is made from an amazing old vintage embroidery, covered in geometric patterns and perfect for storage or cosmetics. It would make a lovely gift for Mothers Day, or for a vintage textile lover.

The front embroidery is backed with canvas to give it some strength, but it is still soft.
The back is made from recycled and faded blue denim, to give it a bit of edge.
It measures 23 cm from side to side, widening slightly towards the bottom.
It measures 22 cm from top to bottom.
There is a bright green zip opening measuring 22 cm with an embroidered flower head zip pull.
There is a finger hook so you can hang it up somewhere special as a little piece of artwork in its own right!
The lining is a vintage 1980’s beige striped cotton.
The bag is finished off with my own embroidered name tag.
There is a tuck at each end, giving a base 3 cm wide.

I like to reuse where possible. Your little bag will be posted out wrapped in clean, recycled packaging. It will be posted out as Royal Mail 2nd class with proof of posting which takes about 3 working days.


What a fabulous old vintage tablecloth to be given by a friend from York. Amongst the tea stains and darned holes, were some lovely sections to create toiletries bags and purses from.
