You beginners can make this small bag, with these easy step my step instructions that have many photos and drawings. Photos are right next to the instruction text step and numbered to match the text instructions. Includes pattern piece to cut out and pin to fabric to cut around. You can make the straight top or curved top. I suggest you learn the straight top first! Sewing in a zipper on the curve more difficult. Kids have made this one their own!
This bag sits up and has a wide opening so it's easy to get things out.
Bag measures about 8.5 inches wide, 5 inches tall. Use it for anything, not just cosmetics; think of all the things you can store in it for any age! Make for gifts, or as the gift bag. Decorate as you please, add tassel or charm to zipper pull tab.

I've been teaching beginning sewing for over four years to ages 8 and up to adults. I see the need for clear instructions with good diagrams for beginners.
