I sewed myself a dopp kit (or toiletry bag) yesterday. I'm really proud of myself, I sewed in a zipper! I think it turned out really cute. I used the laminated cotton Heather Bailey fabric that I got on Monday. I think if I made another one I would use a lining since the laminated cotton is not as sturdy as regular oil cloth fabric. I got the tutorial from the Purl Bee's blog. It was easy to follow, even though I've never sewn a zipper before. Now I have more confidence to tackle other sewing projects, so stay tuned.
Even Monty likes my new bag.
