Triangular Makeup Pouch with Flower Applique (and a super cool GOLD zipper!)

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been distracted by my scraps lately.  I've been sorting and sorting and sorting.  The bins are overflowing - and something needs to be done about it.  The abundance of scraps has me working on some scrappy patterns - probably ready early next year.  But in the meantime, I get so distracted by old fabrics I've loved so much, a whim takes over, and next thing you know, I've made another something for me.  heh heh heh


I really did need to replace the makeup pouch that got destroyed on my trip to Market in the spring.  My foundation spilled all over it during my flight to Portland.  So see?  I made this out of necessity....

Nicey Jane scraps (Heather Bailey) in a little flower applique.  Sometimes I forget how much I like doing applique.  The background fabric is Denyse Schmidt's Florence.


Add a sexy gold zipper!  I bought this one for 25 cents in the clearance bins at Joann's.


It's a fun triangular shape, which means it's super roomy.  This pouch is about 6" high by 10" long.


Now off to go fill it!

  2. Cute! Is there a pattern for this or did you just make it up on the fly? Had the same excitement with a tube of sunscreen in a suitcase when we took the kids to Disney a hundred years ago. Now anything liquid travels in a plastic zipper bag.

  4. I have been on a zipper pouch kick too. I love how pretty and fast (compared to a quilt!) they are. The applique makes yours sing.

  5. I love how the ends of the zipper have fabric over them. I'm going to have to give that a try.
