What you will need to construct a change purse/ make up bag

First thing to do is decide how big you would like your bag.

It could be you want a make up bag or a change purse.

For this tutorial we will be using. 7" x 7" fabric for the outer part and

7" x 7" fabric for the lining and a 9" zipper.

If you would like a stiffer purse, use a 7" x 7' piece of fusible interfacing and

iron this onto the back side of the outer fabric.

Step 2

Open the zipper a bit and pin the outer fabric (top edge folded in) to the top side of zipper,

one side at a time.

Then turn the whole thing over and do the same to the lining fabric.

Try to get the top fabric to line up with the lining fabric.

Pinning through alll fabrics
