Dopp Kits

When I finished making the Weekender Bags, I found that I had a obscene amount of fabrics left over. So I thought it would be fun to make little Dopp Kits for the kids to go with their bags. I found several Dopp Kit tutorials, was (and am still) unsure which one to use, so I decided to try THIS one.

I started using my fabrics, so I wouldn't mess up the kids and somehow run out of fabric. Here's try number... well 2. Try number 1 was a disaster... lol!


The cute little handle. It's still a little wonky, but I think I have it figured out for next time!


In a further flash of brilliance, I decided to try out putting in an exterior zippered pocket. I used THIS tutorial for that, and LOVE how it turned out!! Not hard at all. This is going to become a regular part of my bag making!


All in all, this was fun, and turned out okay. I am going to make the kid's smaller though. SO many firsts here, I am definitely linking up with TNT at Happy Quilting! Today she has an awesome bag tutorial, so check it out!!

If you keep posting stuff like this I am going to have to overcome my antipathy toward zipper application.
