I followed a fellow craftster tut on making a lined zipper pouch. Here's tut:

I had to unpick a few seams and do them over, but the result was awesome! I used a vintage hankie from the thrift store. I thought the ships embroidered on it were adorable and knew it needed to become something. Enter the zipper pouch! I used blue cotton for the lining. It turned out great (minus the swearing part while constructing!)  Wink Enough rambling, on to pics!

Thanks everyone! I have more hankies that I think are destined to become cosmetic pouches as well!  Cheesy
