• DIY: Zippered Toiletries Travel Bag

    One step up from my pencil case tutorial, this large zippered toiletries bag would make a great gift for Mother’s Day. Folds up real small and nice, stick it in the mail with a new shade of lipstick inside or a favorite scent.

    Easy Peasy. Promise. Although, really,  if you’ve never done a zipper before I’d recommend starting with the pencil case one. But really, this one is a cinch too.
    Know what never hurts? Pretty vintage floral fabric peeking out from the lining. That’s what.

      Love this! I am in desperate need of a new bag…especially with Mimi always digging through my make-up and leaving lipstick tops off.

      These are so beautiful! I absolutely love the fabric you used. I think I'll try and tackle these for Mothers Day, and if I do I promise to link up :] Do you have any online stores you can suggest to buy oilcloth?

      I like this! I'll have to see how they do the zippers. I've always done the "trace the tape" method to doing zippers. Thanks for sharing.- Sarahhttp://agirlintransit.blogspot.com/

      Love this, I was just thinking (while putting on my make-up in the car, I know tsk tsk) how my current make-up bag looks like it belongs to a 16 year old stoner. Time to update!

      This looks fantastic! If I can get my act together, I'm absolutely making one of these for my mom for Mother's Day.
