Design Your Own Makeup Bag With Sewlomax

Thursday, January 15, 2015
As some of you may know, I'm an ambassador for Sewlomax! I have a few reviews of their products on my blog, including the *Sewlomax Cream Lipstick Print Pouch (here) and the *Sewlomax Lipstick Pop (here), both of which I genuinely love and use often. When I was offered the opportunity to use the new Sewlomax service/app to design my own makeup bag, I jumped at the chance!

For the app/tab on the website to work you need to have Google Chrome, which I didn't as I always use safari so I had to download it. There are three bag style options available, I picked the *box shape. The bag prices are all the same - £30. You can then choose the bag colours, I chose all grey as one of my favourite makeup bags from Sewlomax is the grey lipstick print pouch which I love. 

You can then add on the images to the bag such as makeup, hearts, stars, perfume bottles and holiday themed items. Rotating, resizing and changing the colour of the images to quick and easy. I chose the makeup images as I am a beauty blogger and I wanted my bag to be beauty blogger themed. The collage above shows the design process and some of the other designs I came up with. You can lay one image over the other so it creates a shadow/3D effect which is what I did with mine. There is a good choice of thread colour as well as images although hopefully with time they will bring out more images and thread colours as well as fonts, if possible.
The design process was easy, simple to follow and fun too, I could have spent more time experimenting with different designs, colours and styles! Here is the final design, I love it! I love the red and white threads overlapping on the lipstick image and I think all of the images look fantastic. I would recommend not making the images too small as they might not look as good as larger images. 

The bag size is perfect as is the shape, it will fit a lot of makeup and toiletries in - I will definitely be taking this bag on holiday with me this year. The bag is made to a high standard, it is soft and padded and it is perfect for a beauty obsessed blogger like me! 

Overall, I think these personalised bags would make amazing presents as they can be made however you want, with numerous images, text and colours. I personally love the box shape bag as it is so spacious and I am very happy with the end result. As each bag is hand embroidered and personalised, the manufacturing time is longer than the other bags - approximately 2-3 weeks. 

Have you bought anything from Sewlomax? What do you think of this design your own makeup bag app/service?

  2. Wow I love the idea of this and could be such a fun way of creating the perfect makeup bag, I have seen a few of their bags and love the look of them :) I'm not sure I could justify £30, but I like the uniqueness of them :)
