A Wee Fix For A Huge Problem

Problem: 

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.

Solution: 
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!

Talk to me! But be nice. Trolls and a-holes will be publicly humiliated and then sent a dead fish in the mail. :o)
