Here's the medium size cosmetic bag I told you about in my earlier post. It is a Lazy Girl pattern called the Perfect Pouches. The pattern gives you dimensions for small, medium and large but she tells you in the pattern how to increase or decrease to any size you want. This is a simple and quick pattern to make. I love doing the zippers the way this pattern says. So easy. All of Lazy Girl's patterns are excellent. They are all well written and easy to follow along for even beginner sewers. If you get a chance, go check out her patterns. Her website is http://www.lazygirldesigns.com/.
Here's the Perfect Pouch I made for a Christmas present. It took me less than 30 minutes to cut it out and sew it up, zipper and all...it's lined too. I put my rotary cutter beside it so you could see the size. I think it's about 7 X 10 inches finished size. I plan on making more of these but will probably make smaller and bigger....I have some decorator fabric that I've used to make bags to give away and it's the perfect weight for these.
Ok, my bed is calling me. Til next time, happy sewing!
