A friend recently gave me a shopping bag full of home dec samples. They turned out to be the perfect size for some small zippered bags. I had a small stash of thrift store zippers, and armed with some on-line tutorials, I made up a few bags.
I used some of these on-line tutorials: Jedi Craft Girl's My Favorite Zipper Pouch, The Sewing Loft's Zipper Tab Tutorial, and the Fat Quarter Shop's video tutorial on making a simple bag.
Since home dec fabrics are heavier than conventional fabrics, there's no need to add a batting or liner. The two layers of fabric create a substantial bag and it was fun to mix and match the fabrics.
