Mini Cosmetics Bag

image image

As promised, here is the result of my new fabrics – a mini cosmetic bag! Not only was I excited to actually make something out of my new fabrics, this project also gave me a chance to practice sewing with zippers (something I’ve never done before). I followed this tutorial, but made mine a bit smaller and more rectangular, rather than square shaped. It is always amazing to see how all the pieces (somehow) come together as you sew. Most importantly, I love the end product and think its completely adorable! That, and it was relaxing to be able to start my crazy, monster of a week with a little creativity.

    Hi Katie – Thanks so much for your comment! I purchased this fabric from Joann’s but unfortunately, I don’t know what it’s called. Its a thicker fabric from the “outdoor” textiles section, if that helps!
