Of all of my little cosmetic pouches (I collect them, for travelling and camping purposes), not ONE was the *perfect* size for the makeup I actually carry around with me day-to-day.
1. A $1.50 quilting "fat quarter" (an 18x22" quarter of a yard of 44" quilt cotton, called that because it's just a teense over an actual quarter. See here).
2. A $2, 7" zipper.
3. About ten minutes.
The round compact fits, but if I had this to do over again I'd have made the thing about 1/4" taller so it wouldn't bulge when the compact is in it.
Otherwise, this is perfect!
