Hey there adorable little cosmetic bag. Aren’t you just super cute!
Don’t you just love that colorful pop of rainbow awesomeness on the inside?
Its a nice size too – room for lots of stuffage!
Unlike the tutorial, I put tabs on both sides of the zipper for ease of use and I didn’t cover the lining fabric with vinyl (used medium weight fusible interfacing instead). I also used a 22 inch zipper and sized it down during the construction of the bag to avoid having to sew around the zipper head (you can move the head around so you don’t have to sew near it…you just have to make sure not to cut the zipper head off with your excess zipper tape when you trim it down – which I almost did, just sayin’…).
By the way, there was also a prototype bag…booyahhh!
Looks cute and I totally love it, but if you get toooooo close you can see where I had a few issues (i.e. seams not lining up) and I made a couple of questionable decisions too (i.e. black thread against orange and white butterfly fabric…really? REALLY? really.)
I so plan to make this bag a million more times. The tutorial was great and it makes a great gift!
