Did I mention I have a lot of scraps to work with?  Snap bags....held shut by two pieces of 1 inch wide tape measures cut to length.  You would be surprised how stout the closure is...Pull tabs on the sides are recommended.  Handles are optional.  You can make all 3 sizes from two coordinating fat quarters, one to serve as the inside lining, the other to be the outside.  Fast, easy and a certain gift giving wow factor.  When my scraps were a little too narrow, I used coordinating fabrics for an extra strip on each side.  No one said extra piecing wasn't allowed!  LOL

Where can I find this pattern?  My son is getting married in November and his bride-to-be would like me to make some make-up bags for the bridesmaids.  These are really cute.

They are very pretty, you did a nice job.  I like making these and the kids love them too.

Free pattern.  However, when I insert the tape measure pieces, I put the numbered side to the inside.  I notice this posting looks a bit convex, and I can see why she might be having a tape breakage issue.

Free You Tube demo.  The pattern I used called for the lining to be 1 1/2 inches longer on each end of the bag, then you turn it over on the outside to make the casing, rather than sew a separate casing on as this video shows.  There are several ways of doing it, so it appears. Pick one and have some fun with it! :)
