I’m sharing a great DIY today for creating this boxy mini makeup bag. Compact enough for your stylish purse but big enough to fit all your touch up supplies you may need for a party, evening out, or special event like a wedding.

Two coordinating fabric (one is preferably upholstery weight), Zipper, Coordinating thread, Pins, Sewing Machine, Scissors, Ruler
Step 1: Cut two pieces of each fabric choice. Each piece should be 5 1/2 x 9 1/2
Step 2: Lay one of the outer fabrics face up on your table, and set the zipper on top, face down so the top edge meets the top edge of the fabric. Then lay one of your lining pieces right side down to meet the top edge as well.
Step 3: Pin along that top edge so all three pieces are attached.
Step 6: Pin, baste and sew with the zipper foot on the top edge like you did for the other side.
