Grace Kelly's Cosmetic Bag

(178)
Difficulty: Easy

This elegant little felted bag is the perfect size for the cosmetics you want to take everywhere you go.  Or make it the only bag you carry to a special event. I imagined it as part of the ensemble that Grace Kelly would carry on her weekend adventure. This little bag would nest inside either of the Overnight or Weekender bags . . . Or, she too, would carry it to the opera, art opening, or market as her only neccary bag.

Make it beautifully yours by decorate it to suit your style:with beads or ribbons for a uniquet look, or, for those of you who prefer the unexpected: festone it with cabochons, spikes, or skulls as a contrast to its vintage, feminine shape.

    If you loved the original Grace Kelly's Overnight Bag, here is another bag to try, with as much structure and vintage styling as the original

    As I re-worked the Grace's Overnight Bag and added her Weekender Bag to the pattern in order that the bag can be made to be worn on the Elegant Frame, I, again, thought of her timeless elegance in Hitchcock's Rear Window

    I will tell my inspriation here again . . . I won't reveal the story, except to say that when the Grace Kelly character insists on staying over at Jimmy Stewart's place so she can look after him, she brings over a tiny overnight bag for a woman with such lovely outfits (you'd imagine she'd have a trunk delivered). But she is as practical as she is fashionable and pulls everything she needs out of the tiny overnight bag: stunning floor length shimmery sleeping gown, tooth brush, etc. . . . This is, of course, in the days of separate bedrooms or one foot on the floor fully clothed.
