Nikki gave me this lovely little kit & pattern for make-up purses (although I’ve made plenty of bags, I hadn’t made any purses like this with zippered tops before). Here is the result!
I really like the boxed corners – it means that these little purses hold much more than those made from two square rectangles. Both are lined with contrasting fabric (should have photographed the inside too, I suppose. Too late now!) I’ll be whipping up LOADS of these in the months ahead to add to the “little gift” stash. The tissue cozies have come into their own as teacher gifts etc already, and I think that these would fit the bill perfectly as well.
You can find the pattern here: (just scroll down a little). By the way – Happy Birthday Nikki!
