Zippered bag and sophomore year

My baby is in 10th grade this year... growing up way too fast.  Such a handsome young man with a good "head" on his shoulders most of the time and for that I'm very grateful.  Praying for a very successful year for him. 

We went to the coast this weekend and visited with family.  While the guys were fishing I had a little fun in Hobby Lobby.  And let me just say the one in Biloxi is much bigger than the one near me.  I bought some fabric and made a little zippered bag to go in my purse.  The first one didnt look so hot but the second was much better, not perfect,, but better.   I made it using the tutorial found here.  Only thing different was my fabric size which made the bag a little bit bigger.  But the tutorial was fairly easy to follow and I've only done a zipper one other time.   The finished size is approx 5x9 in. and plenty big to hold my makeup. 
Hope everyone has a great week..

  2. Love the zipper bag! My baby is a sophomore this year too! Our district just finished 2 new high schools. They are also implementing a new dress code-solid polo style shirts or school t's only and shirts must be tucked in. Studenst aren't too thrilled !
