This beauty may just be my new favorite pattern. Designer Lindsey Rhodes of LRStitched created a super cute, convenient, and easy-to-construct pattern for a cosmetics case with three clear zip pouches so that you can always find what you need. It is a must-have for any on-the-go gal, for use with travel, or even just day-to-day. I know my handbag would be far more organized if I had one of these little guys to stash inside.

Grab your favorite print (or your mom’s favorite print) and get started on this one today!

Lindsey was born in Dallas, Texas and grew up always dabbling in something crafty. She taught herself to sew at the age of 16 after inheriting an old Singer sewing machine. Her Grandmother had written her name on the underside and that small gesture has sparked a love of sewing, quilting and pattern design. She has a special love of making handbags and finding ways to add unique finishing touches to make the project sparkle.

Lindsey now resides in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and two small children. You can follow along in her crafty pursuits at www.lrstitched.com.
