Step 1: Supplies

Step 2: Cut Fabric
Cut the fabric into 3 pieces. 9" x 3", 9" x 5" and 9" x 7".
Step 3: Sew Fabric to Zipper
Fold the 3" x 9" piece in half, lengthwise. Pin the folded edge to one side of the zipper. Fold the 7" x 9" piece in half lengthwise and pin it to the other side of the zipper. Using the sewing machine with a zipper foot, stitch both sides of the zipper.
Step 4: Side Seams
Place the regular presser foot back on the sewing machine. Unzip the zipper and pin the front of the make up bag to the 5" x 9" piece of fabric, right sides together. Sew around all 4 sides. Zig-Zag around all 4 sides to prevent the edges from fraying. Turn right side out. Press.
