Friday Finish: Cosmetic Bag

I have several projects soooo close to completion but only one finish today.

boxy pouch
 I followed a tutorial (by Skip to My Lou) found on Pinterest to make this boxy cosmetic pouch.  Other than adding some topstitching, I followed the tutorial as written.

The fabrics used for both the outside and the lining are designed by Tina Givens in home decor weight bought on sale.

zipper pull
antique mirror and brush
I added a zipper pull from Zipit.  The gorgeous mirror and brush set are my grandmother's.

While home for Thanksgiving my mom showed me a few of her recent finishes.  Since she doesn't have a blog (yet), I am showing them off here ;-)

baseball quilt made by my mom
 I love this baseball quilt she made for her all-star grandson!  She added appliqué and buttons for the scoreboard.

mini stockings and tree skirt
 This mini tree skirt and stockings are for her granddaughter's personal Christmas tree gifted a previous Christmas.  SO cute!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!  Linking up with Amanda Jean's finish it Friday.


  1. Great pouch! That might be my 'go-to' gift next year. I use two other pouch patterns by Skip To My Lou and they never fail me and give a quick stylish gift. Thanks for the idea. How lucky are those grandkids getting such heartfelt gifts from their grandma.

  2. Great zipper pouch! And a cute zipper pull to finish it off! Thanks for the link to Zipit!

  3. They are very cute indeed, both the zipper box and the Christmas tree skirt!
    Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

  4. I love your box pouch! I always love seeing you sew 3D items. :) The box pouch has been on my list for a very long time. Maybe one of these days....

    thanks for linking up to finish it up Friday! xo

  5. I love your bag! And to think how you resisted 3D sewing!
