Some firsts...

After eyeing the cute cosmetic bag Kristina Werner made, I decided to try my hand at making one.  I used tutorials from Sew Like My Mom and Sew4home to make mine.  I wanted mine to have the handle from Sew4home, but I like the overall tutorial from Sew Like My Mom better.

Now, for the firsts.  I've never had luck sewing a zipper before this project.  I've never worked with vinyl covered fabric.  I've never tweaked a pattern that worked so well.  I love this little bag so much I want to make more!  I can see the original size stuffed with goodies for birthdays or Christmas.  Cause really, don't we all need more cute bags for things?

I didn't take pictures as I went (maybe next time?), and the fabric is just fat quarters from Hancock Fabrics.
