Lace Zips



The lace zips were back out again and I made a couple of  'cosmetic bags' or anything else you want to put in them!  These are lined and I spent ages wandering around the internet looking for ideas to not have raw edges, I added a few onto my pinterest. I did like the idea of folding in the edges and then covering with fabric/binding, I found the other way of not sewing to the edge a bit fiddly, filled a Sunday afternoon!
I just don't like to have raw edges even if they are zig zagged.

Fabric from Florida

I didn't post the fabric I bought last summer in Florida, i did also manage to find some in Fabricland on my visit to Canada last September too.

Walmart, Joanns, HobbyLobby and even TuesdayMorning managed to have things that I 'needed'.

Show and tell time


So a long time since I have posted on here, but I have been making, maybe not so much in the last few weeks. I will start with a few old makes,  here is a mini cross body bag that I take when I go walking with my friend Wendy.  

We often stop back in town to buy a paper or such like, and takes my keys, phone and tissues nice and light.




I then bought some lace zips that were just in random colours and I couldn't decide what to do with the initially and then realised that a couple of little bags to same would be perfect.

I left them at Hexton Country Matters for sale.



I forgot I had the cord fabric, so made a slightly bigger pocket with a snap fastener


The idea was originally from a youtube video by Smarmy
