It 8 inches high and 15 across and the clasp is magnetic- which was totally easy!! It has plenty of room for everything I need. I finally don't have to worry about messing up my brushes when I travel. The side pocket holds only makeup stuff. My toiletry bag is still used for everything else.
Speaking of the pocket I don't know if you can tell but I totally lined up the fabrics pattern... to bad I didn't think of it on the brushes part! I don't know where that came from because I am SOOO not usually that on top of things! It could be the fact that I picked up some wondertape that my mum blogged about before starting this and let me tell you that stuff changes lives...haha... I had the zipper in and perfect in all of 5 seconds, usually it's twenty minutes of pinning and repinning and fighting with the machine. Buy it!
I used peltex (or what ever that hard interfacing is) on the outside so it holds it's shape.
Oh and I hide every seam because I am definitely OCD about about raw edges. I will probably do a tutorial sometime in the future for this... but there's no telling how long that will take me.
WIP's I have been crazy busy sewing. There will be a lot of kitchen aid covers available shortly I will show you them over the next week or so. I think I have 7 more. And I am feeling pretty confident with my pattern now so I will hopefully be getting around to finally creating a tutorial for these as well. This one has been so difficult because I will actually need to do a pattern piece... and it's not all going to fit on one page... argh!
