I made it ... Zippered Make-up bags

I am so beyond excited right now to share this with you. These are the first anything that I have made with zippers! Woot, I am really a seamstress now! hehe. Well, I am getting there anyway!

These cute little bags where also in the Quilts and More mag I featured a couple of posts ago.  I used a couple of  fat quarters I snagged at Jo-Anns on sale and pieced them together with 2 inch squares. I actually made four of them in an assembly line sorta style, one for myself and one for each of my girls. They snagged them right away, and have already begun making requests for more! lol

I am so proud of it! hehe.


I was thinking with all the give-a-ways, when I finally reach 500 visitors I should do a give a way, and a couple of these would be fun! What do you think?

  23. This turned out so cute that I am contemplating making one (except the difference being that I don't actually know how to sew,...yet). Gorgeous. :)
