Ho-Ho-Ho_Back Again!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Mine included mainly eating -A LOT!- with family and friends but also I had the time to relax and create a thing of two. So, here is what I've made.
I had around a tutorial for a Boxy Cosmetic Bag but -as ALWAYS!- I can't follow the step by step instructions as they are, I have to experiment a little! hahaha The truth is that I haven't had a long zipper, so I thought that if I would change A LITTLE the measurements then it would fit the one I had around. I've made a mess! I've put the zipper on the wrong side, the measurements were in inches, I arbitrarily changed them into centimeters and... a whole new bag was born! hahaha
It looked like that
When it supposed to look like this

Then I figured... what if I would fold it in half
and maybe put a decorated elastic band to hold it?
And a whole different idea was born!
A cosmetic bag with two pockets.
Cool, huh?
The second one that I've made was based on a tutorial for a Make Up Bag. Again, I've made my changes. Since I didn't have the printed pattern, I've sketched one free handed on my own. I didn't use any fabric or any other for the inside lining, just the plastic fabric that I've used before.
My Bag ended up like this
When it supposed to look like this
 A little close up
Well, aren't these two bags represent the phrase
"take this tutorial to the next level"? - hahaha
I'm thinking of making more of those. 
What do you think?

  1. Α, τέλειες οι τσάντες σου και όντως το tutorial το πήγες ένα βήμα παραπέρα!

  2. Σ'ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ! Τουλάχιστον μέσα από τις "καταστροφές" μου, βγαίνει κάτι καλό! χαχαχα

  3. Και το τσαντάκι και η κορδέλα μ'άρεσαν πολύ. το τσαντάκι το έφτιαξες δηλαδή όλο εσύ; Δηλαδή να πιάσουμε ραπτομηχανή και τσιγκελάκια; Πώς το έκανες το τσαντάκι να έχει δυο θήκες; Τέλειο είναι!!!!!!!!!

  4. Σ'ευχαριστώ πάρα πολύ Κωνσταντίνα! Ναι, και τα δύο τσαντάκια τα έφτιαξα μόνη μου και ΝΑΙ, αν ΕΓΩ μπορώ να τα φτιάξω, μπορεί και ο καθένας! Στο πρώτο, για να γίνουν οι δύο θήκες απλά το δίπλωσα στη μέση και έβαλα το λάστιχο για να κλείνει. Αν βγάλεις το λάστιχο και το ανοίξεις ξαναγίνεται ένα μεγάλο τσαντάκι. Ελπίζω να έβγαλες νόημα...
