I can now mark Joy's Toiletry Bag of my list of things to do. Have you made one of these? I made the first bag in Spring colours. I even used up a very very old zip that I have had in my sewing room for such a long time. The zip was metal and the material was made of cotton not man made material like they are now. That is how old the zip is. The zip was recycled from another project, I think it probably came from a cushion,it was too long but the good thing with zips if they are to long you can just chop them off where you need to. Old habits are hard to change. I only realised when I was making the second bag I had cut the binding 2.5 inches instead of 2 inches. It worked out well I didn't need to mitre the corners. I will be using my Spring Toiletry Bag as a Toiletry Bag. I wonder if I say to Ian that we need a weekend away because I have a new bag to test out will he book us in somewhere nice!!! I can only try.
After making one I decided I would make one in Autumn colours. This one I did use 2 inch binding. It pays to read every part of the pattern. I will be using this one for those sewing supplies like scissors,quick-un-pick pins etc to take to sewing.
Thank you Joy for sharing your pattern with us. That is two more projects completed for the month.
