I’ve been on the lookout for a new makeup bag for ages — years, in fact!  The one I’ve been using, although cute, is ridiculously small.  I just haven’t been able to find one that meets my perameters without costing way too much.  I finally found a solution at the dollar store — it just needed a quick adjustment to do the job right!

It actually started life as a handbag with no closure.  I simply ditched the handles and added a zipper!  Anyone can do this!  [find out how here]

Project Estimate:

  • handbag, $1
  • zipper, $1 or on hand

Total:  $1 and up!
