I wanted to try making a washbag after seeing a tutorial for one a while ago. Typically I couldn't find the tutorial when I needed it so I kind of made it up as I went along! It took a few attempts and a little bit of unpicking to get it right!! I really like it though and it really shows off the zip nicely. Could be used as a make up bag or for a pouch for storing sewing goodies maybe?
This was a great opportunity to use up some of my lovely fabrics. I choose Tanya Whelan's 'Falling Roses' fabric for this project which you can find here
I also made a pretty little lined make up bag which was super quick and easy. The zip looks really pretty on the outside. I love that you are not limited by the size of your zip and can make your projects bigger or smaller depending on how you feel! This is made using Dashwood Studio's 'Petite Street - Flower' fabric which you can find here.
I lined it with some lovely spotty Michael Miller fabric. The co-ordinating pink thread worked a treat and is a perfect colour match. The zips were really easy to sew on.
There are so many things you could do with these pretty zips. They would look great on bags or clothes. Coats have a lovely tutorial on their website for using them to embellish a childs T Shirt. You can find it on the Coats Crafts website here.
