How to sew a boxy zippered cosmetic bag


Hey y’all and welcome to Sewspire!

Today I am here to show you how to so this boxy zippered pouch which is ideal for storing cosmetics, small collections and so much more!

This sewing project may be addictive as I can’t stop sewing these sweet bags. I keep finding uses for them and they make me so happy!

For this project you will need two 12″ x 10″ cotton fabric pieces, one 7″ YKK zipper to match, 12″ of embroidery floss and a small felt ball or pom.

I hope you enjoy the project and will share photos of your finished bags with our creative community on the Sewspire Facebook and Instagram pages.

I will be back next week with another inspired sewing project. Until then, please know the creative genius in me salutes the creative genius in you!
