  • How to make a pouch, purse or wallet. Make Up Bag - Step 1
    Step 1

    Firstly you want to get your different coloured bags, you can get lots of different colours so go and experiment different shops, you need to cut them all into little squares. I fold mine up and cut the sides, tops and bottoms and then you can cut them into squares quickly and easily

    Next you want to get your zip lock bag and stuff a towel inside it, this is so that when you iron on top of it, the heat will not melt the two sides together

Yeah, you can just make a sheet fuse the sides together and cut any excess off but becasue of the zip, I do this for the make-up bags. Post your version Shivi!!

You could probably just fuse the plastic together in a sheet and sew it into whatever shape you like, too.

YAY! I've been wanting to try plastic bag fusing!!!!!
does the ziplock become part of the makeup bag, or is it just a mould?
