Cute little pouch

I spent a very little bit of time in my sewing room today. I was able to put together the first of this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge cosmetic bags. It took more time than I expected as there are seams to match up.  The first time I sewed the two fronts to the zipper I forgot to consider that the squares needed to line up and, of course, they didn't. So I took it apart, used some pins and now I'm happy with how it turned out.



This little pouch is about 8 1/2" x 4 1/2"
Tomorrow I hope to put together it's mate - a larger toiletry bag.

I'm linking up at Confessions of a Fabric Addict , Rainbow Scrap Challenge, Sew Darn Crafty linkys.

i need to pick up some zippers and make one of these. I would love to keep my new binding clips in a cute pouch like this.

So cute. Glad you were able to match up all those seams. Little zipper bags are always so handy to have around.

I covet all the darling pocket bags everyone makes. I've got to make me one. So nice. I worked with Blue this week too. :) happy sewing!

This is a good idea for using up scraps and making something useful. Will you be making a make-up bag in each colour, or will you be making other sizes too?

Little pouches come in handy. Yours is very pretty. I like the darker blue fabric on the inside.
