My new makeup bag (eco-friendly canvas bag by SewLomax).


I don't own tons of makeup as I tend to stick to products I know and love, but the small makeup bag I was using up until recently wasn't cutting the mustard. Travelling anywhere with it was a nightmare as the zip wouldn't close and I would end up with my makeup spilling out all over the place, so I vowed to get myself a bigger bag.

SewLomax got in touch with me recently to tell me about their eco-friendly canvas bags with their pretty designs (finished by hand) which have Scotchguard protection and can be wiped clean. I was intrigued to have a look at the designs, one of which they let me choose to review, and thought that a new makeup bag would solve my problem.

It took me ages to settle on one design as I like so many of them. The poo bag holder is genius (I'm tempted to place a cheeky order) and the wash bag caught Jonathan's eye as he takes products to the gym, and on weekends away, and often larger deodorants and things like that don't fit in the wash bag he's already got.

Being the bright spark that I am, it took me a while to discover the "more bags" arrow on some of the listings where there are even more designs for that style of bag. The item I chose in the end was the nail polish makeup bag which is the perfect size for the every day makeup items I use with plenty of room for me to add my skincare too, for nights away at my parents house or when I go on holiday.

My bag arrived last week and I love it! As I mentioned it's a good size, can be wiped cleaned if necessary, and the design on the front is so girly and pretty. I haven't seen anything else like this in the shops or online so I really feel like I've got a unique product.

The quality is excellent and there are so many great designs to choose from that they would make great Christmas or birthday gifts.

The cupcake wash bag, the camera case and the penny purse are particularly cute and I'm certain you'll love them, but the mens wash bag would make a great gift for the man in your life too!

Emma is the brains behind SewLomax. What does Emma say about her brand?

My creative imagination has always been a big part of who I am and a place I love to escape to. For me, creating and making is my coming home and I am filled with excitement when I find just the right fabric or catch sight of rows and rows of beautiful wools, silks and cotton. Even discovering an old bobbin or button fills me with butterflies and glee in anticipation at what can be created from these often discarded items. 

My selection of bags are not only fun but also stylish, and offer unique and creative ways to organise your day. Each piece in the SewLomax range is lovingly finished by hand which enables the owner to feel that they own something individual and unique. SewLomax products are ageless and timeless and appeal to many genres from the gym goer to the busy city worker! I will be adding new styles regularly to ensure my customers are kept in a buoyant mood!

Happy browsing! ;)
