O my! I had no idea adding zippers to your bag would be such a challenge. I made my first-ever top zip make-up bag.

Well, to start with, I don’t have a zipper foot for my machine so I just swiveled my ‘regular’ foot around.

Then I forgot to insert the zipper edges into the side seams. You won’t see it in the pictures (Creative Photography!). I added a tote bag to go with the make-up bag. What I absolutely love about the project is the fabric, both the oustide and the inside. I named the bag, Oriental Spice. I like naming my products. It brings them to life and adds a personality to it. This will become a gift for my mother who will be travelling to Pakistan end of March and I am sure both of these items will come in handy for her. Also because she loves bags.

I added a buttons design feature which was inspired by Whitney Sew’s video:

Very proud of how that turned out.

I have more of the fabric so am open to custom orders, once I am better skilled at the zipper.

Over and out for now! … J
