This week I decided to do a last-minute project. We will be leaving for a cruise in a few days to celebrate our 50th anniversary, and I thought "hey, why not make everyone a cute toiletry bag?!"
I had several colors of a fairly new product (at least to me) called jelly vinyl. It's a matte-finish vinyl and really easy to sew. I purchased it in six colors, along with another product I have not worked with before, zipper by the yard. You get a long strip of zipper tape, cut the length you need, and add the zipper pull. Believe me, I watched multiple You-Tube videos to figure out how to attach that zipper pull. But I finally found the video that worked for me and I consider myself a pro now. Ha!
I purchased all my supplies from Natalie of Sew Hungry Hippie (isn't that the most fun name?). She also had a great video on YouTube on how to construct the zipper pouch with the jelly vinyl. Highly recommended.
I made two of each color and they turned out so cute! And the black and white stripe zipper tape with the iridescent zipper teeth and pull just add to the cuteness.
