Dotty Make Up Bag

I bought this fabric in three colours about a year ago and didn't really know what to make with it until I came across this tutorial.

The tutorial used an 8" circle for the template but I made mine 10".

It's a very easy pouch to make but the zip can be a bit tricky. If you don't put it in absolutely equal it will twist at the end of your closed zip end. In the photo below you may notice mine twisted just a fraction.

I like how the boxed corners on the inside have binding to give it a neat finish.

 And as you can see there's still loads of room for more make up or whatever you want to use it for.
