Since the start of the semester, I've learned a handful of skills that I use in almost every project. I bought myself my own sewing machine and created my own little sewing station in my room. Lately, I have been focusing on making these little zipper-pouch makeup bags/pencil cases/change purses. They are fun and easy to make and turn out really cute! Plus, they are very useful. We learned how to make them in class and that's what prompted me to make them at home. I use a DYI I found online, rather than what we learned in class, because it give the bags a more tailed and clean look. Click here if you are interested in trying it yourself!
A few people have even asked me to make them bags, so I have! It's a quick way to make a small profit and I really like doing it. I'm thinking of putting them up on Etsy sometime soon, so keep your eye out for the opening of my Etsy shop! Also, if you want one before I do, just contact me. They can be made any length and width you'd want with any type of color or pattern. I'd be happy to answer any request so let me know! :)
