This thread is so inspiring and I've just bought some thrift shop zips so I plan to make some mini versions. Can't wait :-)

This is my first post of something I've made, I hope the photos work...

I've been eyeing this bag up for ages and made this one a few months ago with relative ease.


So I thought I'd make some for christmas presents for my friends. For some reason these didn't go together as well as the first one, I think it was because I didn't trim the zip and had trouble with the edges. After the first few I decided to use one of the corners of the lining as the 'turning' edge and oversewed it, I thought it gave the inside of the bag a better look than an oversewed section in the bottom.

They all have co-ordinating linings and a little pocket.


Then i made this one for a colleague who had admired the stripy ones, but is a bit less girly. I had the material left over from a pirate dress I made for my daughter. This one went together really easily, I decided to keep the outside as one piece rather than have a seam at the bottom - it seemed to work well.

Thanks for looking.  Smiley

I discovered craftster a few months ago and found this post.  I've made several of these bags and thought I'd post the first couple I made.  I still have trouble with the zipper turning out.. sometimes comes out better than others.  I just started sewing so hope to get better.. Thanks for the great tutorial!

sorry can't post the pictures directly yet.. hope the links work

Hey QueenofDIY! I love this pattern!
I've been lurking on Crafster for months now, and I tried your cosmetic bag over the Christmas holidays for presents for my friends.
It's an amazing tutorial, and you did such a good job explaining. Every once in a while the zipper doesn't always work out for me, but sometimes I just have to handsew it. I wanted to thank you for such a terrific pattern! I can't post pics directly yet, so just check it out here.

Lagaz, your bags are FABULOUS!!!  I love, love, love the designs.  Do you paint them?  I bet they're lots of fun to make.  Each one is definitely unique!  Looks like they're coated to protect them as well.   Fantastic.....  Wink

Yep, they are all handpainted Smiley Each have a handpainted patch that is sewn on for extra dimension.
My daughter helps with designing the patches Smiley
Somewhat labour intensive, but definitely worth it Smiley

So queenofdiy, after you found the dimensions for the bag I needed, I ended up using this tutorial to make it! I altered the measurements with a few stumbles, and added a pocket before I sewed up the lining. I'm really happy with it, though. So thanks for all your help! The little squares at the ends of the zipper were especially helpful.
