I sewed my first zippers!
Jenny and I had a sewing playdate where the kids played while we sewed at the kitchen table. She taught me how to make these fun zippered bags.
You can make them in any size and they have a million uses: store a zillion match box cars, toiletries, make up, snacks, overnight bags, school supplies, etc. Anything.
I decided to make them waterproof, so I could use them for snacks, sippy cups, wet bathing suits, etc. Just seemed practical. Eventually, everything in our life gets sticky.
So, they are lined in a lemon yellow, with clear vinyl on top. Charlotte's is lined in a shiny rose satin, with vinyl.
I made a blue and yellow one for myself too, but without the vinyl. It was much easier to sew just the fabric (instead of the stiff vinyl too) but it doesn't stand up on its own or have as much body. And, of course, its not waterproof.
