I promised I would donate a pencil case or make-up pouch to our church for a fundraiser to send kids to summer camp, so here it is. I based it loosely on the free chevron wristlet tutorial (minus the chevron pattern bit, hehe) by Rae.
You can find the tutorial here: http://grosgrainfabulous.blogspot.com/2011/05/free-pattern-month-day-22-made-by-rae.html#chevrons
It is my first ever make-up pouch, complete with lining, I am very pleased with the colour combo and now I am hooked to pouch making, cause it is sooo easy.
100% cotton placemat from the dollar store, cotton blend turquoise pillowcase for the lining (also from the dollar store), 1 – 8 inch zipper.
