As I mentioned yesterday, I am here in Salt Lake City all week for the Alt Summit and pre-Alt Summit Cricut event. For those of you who have not heard of it, the Alt Summit is a place where lifestyle, DIY, craft, home decor, food and style bloggers gather to meet each other, potential sponsors and learn more about being the best bloggers we can be. This will be my second year as an attendee and I am looking forward to it! At the Cricut event tonight, they announced a new and amazing machine called the Explore. I will be trying it out tomorrow and will give a full report later. From what I have seen so far, this is the smart phone of cutting machines. Exciting!!
For my trip this week, I was in need of some new zipper bags to carry my makeup, brushes and face care. Loving the monogram zipper bags I shared last summer, I wanted to make a larger and elegant version of these to carry all of my new face care items. I love black polka dot oilcloth pattern I found in both white and gold at my local fabric store and made several bags to keep my items organized. You can follow the tutorial below for the step-by-step instructions to make these stylish bags. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where I will share the tutorial on my matching makeup brush roll.
