And then I got carried away... : )
It was so simple and fun to make that I decided to create a tutorial for it!
Cosmetics Bag Tutorial
What you will need:
2 -10 1/2" w x 8" h outer pieces of fabric
2- 10 1/2" w x 8" h lining pieces
2- 10 1/2"w x 8" h sturdy interfacing
1- 9 inch zipper
1- 6" piece of ribbon
Place one of your lining pieces right side up and pin the zipper right side up, to the top edge of your lining and stitch all the way across using your zipper foot. Stitch relatively close to the teeth of the zipper. Repeat for other piece of lining.
With one of the outer pieces right side up, place one side of the zipper right side down, lining up the edges. Pin and stitch across, trying to stitch on top of the same stitch used to sew the zipper to the lining. Repeat with other side.
Open the pieces. The lining pieces should be right sides together on one side of the zipper and the outer pieces should be right sides together on the other side. Pull the zipper open half way. Pin and stitch along all three sides leaving the bottom of the lining open. Trim the zipper and edges if needed.
Turn right side out through the opening of the lining. Carefully push the corners out. Top stitch the lining to close and press.
You're all done!!! A very simple and quick project for your jet setting adventures!
