I've been working on this bag all week, I think I've finally gotten over my urge to finish things in one sitting and thus preventing most screw ups and anger fits.  Roll Eyes Haha. Anyway, I was planning on making this type of bag for a swap, but I wanted to make a prototype first, and that's how this bag was born.  Cheesy

I really like the design, although my construction isn't great. But anyway, what do you think? Criticism welcome. Smiley

I like it! It will also work out as a pillow when you make it bigger! hm I think  I am saying that because it looks so filled in the picture. Though I really love the design!

Thank you. I used interfacing to make it stiff, but I was having a hard time getting decent pictures so I stuffed some tissue paper in it. Smiley

I would really like a tutorial for this bag!  It would be perfect for weekend get aways considering it looks long enough to hold a toothbrush  Smiley  You did a lovely job!

Hey Lauren!  Your boxy cosmetic bag is awesome Smiley  Love your choice of fabrics too!  Is the cosmetic bag lined?

Thanks guys! Smiley
loves2experiment - It is infact lined, with green polka dotted fabric nonetheless. I used some fabric glue as a temp. solution because the pins were getting in my way and I am in the process of handsewing it in right now.  Roll Eyes

Newyorksewer and stick - I have seen these bags online before, and someone posted a scan from a japanese craftbook with the shape of the pieces, but I figured out the dimensions, and how to put it together. If you really want I can make a tutorial.... It's not that hard Smiley Thankfully.

I really like your fabric choices! Oh my and ther is polka dot on the inside, that just tops it off. You did a lovely job. Hand sewing the lining, you have much more patentice than I do! Smiley

I've seen a tutorial for one like this on a blog somewhere, I'm sure I have it on a bookmark on one of my computers. I think it was inspired from the same book you have probably. Seeing yours reminded me that this style is one I really want to try.

Do you think a tab loop on one end (where the top and bottom fabrics meet, centered under the zipper) would be too bulky because of the zipper? If so, I may try a short handle like men's shaving kit bags.

Thanks for posting and for the inspiration.
