These zippered cosmetic bags are super cute and quick to sew up. Lia Griffith has a tutorial showing how. Boxed corners give it a flat bottom and the stiff oilcloth helps it stand up on its own. The oilcloth also gives it a water resistant and wipe clean surface, both good features for a bag that will hold your cosmetics. Go to Lia Griffith for the tute.
