Oilcloth Boxy Cosmetic Bag

Aug 16, 2010

More dabbling in oilcloth fun!  If you haven't tried it, give it a whirl.  Sometimes it's fun to whip something up in an hour when most quilt projects are such an endeavor.



This cute boxy number was made from a pattern found on Skip to my Lou.  I changed the dimensions to 12" x 10" since I already had the 12" zipper.  It's big enough to hold quite a few toiletries... the one on the tutorial (16" x 14") must be huge!



P.S.  This time I tried to use the zipper foot when sewing.  I'm kind of a zipper novice and I thought I could do better if I used the right foot.  Nope!  Oilcloth grooves MUCH better with the walking foot - even when doing the zipper.  I just sewed right up to the zip, then pretty much took the walking foot off (with the needle down) to zip the zipper past where I was sewing, then started up again.



This bag is partying here:
