What materials did you use? Cotton fabrics. Lining coated with Lamifix to make it waterproof.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would reverse the D-ring and lobster clip fastening, if I made it again. The lobster clip is too small to fit over hooks found in hotel bathrooms but the D-ring would fit. As it is, it is the wrong way round.to work as a hanging bag. I was not able to get handbag zips in the UK and had to use zips with thin fabric for the tape, They had width but not stiffness and I think this made them more difficult to use.

Great tip about the D ring. Love your bag

Two bags done! I am impressed! Great idea to use the lining to make the inside waterproof and good hint for reversing the Dring and hook. Sorry you can't find the handbag zippers there. Don't forget that we ship anywhere in the world, so if you want to order for another project, we can get them to you quickly. Love the quilting on your bag as well. Beautiful job.

Annie, I've been considering ordering your zips from the UK too, but am worried I'll be stung by our postal handling charge and tax. What postal service do you use to send to your products? Thx

Hi Catrin, I ordered several of Annie's zips and they arrived in the UK about a week later with no extra charges. They're also in lovely colours and of a type/quality I've never seen here. Would definitely order them again.
