Zippers: Toiletry Bag

One thing that I still haven't mastered is placing zippers.  It's something that I have been wanting to tinker around with but I didn't have any zippers around to practice with.  After searching the web for a few tutorials for zippered pouches I found some ideas, went to the store to stock up on zippers of different lengths/colors and set to work with my scrap pile.

I really love this first boxy toiletry bag.  The tutorial is from Skip to my Lou.  It is roomy and a great size to store all kids of things.  And while I added a handle to one end to improve the functionality I don't care for the exposed interior seams/raw edges (if I would have made it with oil cloth/laminated cotton, like the tutorial recommends, then this would have been less of an issue for me).

I am not sure what will become of this one.  It might just hang around the house for a bit.  I'm sure one of my daughters will take to it soon enough.
