small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be able to sew a consistent 1/2" seam

Pattern Description:

If you are afraid of zippers, then this is the pattern for you! The technique is a bit unconventional and, in my opinion, looks better than traditional zippered cosmetic bags. And trust me, it gets easier with very little practice.

I do not pin the zipper when I sew it in! I just use slight pressure with my fingers to hold it in place as I sew.

Be sure to go to my pattern shop and download my FREE tutorials: How To Make a Zipper Template and How to Insert an Exposed Zipper. You'll need these to make this cosmetic bag.

BTW, my favorite zipper store is Zipperstop! You can find them on eBay.

Materials:

  • 12" zipper, two pieces of fabric, fusible fleece
