« on: September 22, 2017 12:36:17 PM »

My makeup collection has multiplied out of control over the past year, and for a while I was using three different bags to carry everything, so I finally started browsing around for a large, boxy cosmetics bag that could hold everything. When I didn't find anything I loved, I decided to suck it up, pull out the sewing machine for the first time in years, and make one of my own.

I'm ecstatic over how it came out, considering I haven't done a large sewing project in seven or eight years, and I'm looking forward to making a few more for friends.

The pattern I used came from The Seasoned Homemaker: https://www.seasonedhomemaker.com/diy-zippered-box-pouch-tutorial/
Although I increased the dimensions by two inches when I was cutting the fabric to be sure I could fit more items inside.

I got the fabric in the Halloween section of JoAnn Fabrics. (The inside/zipper pulls are just a dark gray that I found in the single fat quarters section.)

Ah, I see what you did. I thought you'd offset the zip but you changed the dimensions by adding inches to the pattern. Nice work, excellent fabric and fabric placement.
