Last Night's Zipper Bag
A clean table is inspiration. I needed to sew buttons and button holes on Larry's Christmas present (does anyone else wrap up almost-done gifts? eeks!) and I had extra of his brown print. It became the lining to a project I've been trying to get to since summer.
You can find the tutorial here, called the Straight Sided Triangular Cosmetic Bag. I just call it cute! so cute, there is another one coming along nicely beside it!
I also strengthened the outer fabric with fuseable fleece. I think I could have used a lighter weight interfacing, but I used what I had on hand. I purchased the zippers at the thrift store, for 29 cents apiece! I could not believe almost $2 apiece at Joann's, part of the reason these were not attempted before now. Is that silly? I save on every bit I can.
Doesn't my Larry's shirt make a nice backdrop? *smile*
