* makeup bag

Posted on January 24th, 2010 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

Forgot to post this present I made for my sister. She’s interviewing for internships and traveling a lot, so I made a little zip bag for makeup or whatever. It’s made out of a plastic bag I got at Ikea for 99 cents. The plastic was a little annoying to work with (you can see the crinkles from turning it), but at least it’s sturdy and spill-resistant. The pattern was made up as I went along, according to the size zipper I had and just eyeballing how much to square the bottom corners.


I still have more of the bag material left, so now I’m trying to think what to do with the rest of it.
