Mini Box-y Make Up Bag

I love bags, all bags--totes, suitcases, book bags, make up bags it really never ends.

I'm sorry you had to see that.

Naturally, when I decide I want to make something it is usually a bag of some sort. At some point I hope to grow and make other things, but for now you will see a lot of bag making goin' on up in here.

I have been wanting to make a boxy bag or as I like to call it a toiletry bag/dopp kit. It is more the shape of a mans dopp kit, and I adore the shape! I saw this amazing bag on Say Yes to Hoboken, which is an absolutely amazing blog, I highly suggest checking it out.

This small bag is perfect for a beginner, and perfect for someone new to zippers. I can not lie, those zippers can be tricky, especially when you are just starting out. Continue Reading...

I took this picture when I had intended to make a whole step by step tutorial, but there is no need because I could not do it better than Liz at Hoboken, please go check out the tutorial on her blog. I just wanted to post this picture because I lurve it.

This is my favorite bag I have made so far. It is perfect for make up, crochet hooks, pencils, a nail polish kit, first aid kit, wedding day survival kit--you name it! It is so easy to make that you could buy something fun and girly, whip this up and present it in the bag. There is nothing like a store bought gift with a handmade touch. 

On a totally unrelated note, Casey and I are watching the Olympic Men's Kayaking. Casey totally eats this up, we were just discussing how much he loves unconventional sports and would much rather watch something like this, or even a honey ham chunk competition than football or baseball.

Honey Ham. That's my husband, that's what we are dealing with here folks.

Hope you are all enjoying the Olympics, these people are ballers.
