diy travel kit

one of my best friends is getting married in a couple of weeks yay!!  unfortunately that means flying...12+ hours of flying...and then some grungy hotel action:/  on the plus side travelings means adorable little pouches and organizers which are some of my fav things in the world.  so i decided to whip up a little travel kit for my trip.  it holds hair bands, bobby pins, nail clippers, tweezers, band-aids, and even a small tube of neo.  this was also the first time i made a pocket-y type zipper-not sure what the technical name is...  but it was actually pretty simple and i can already imagine plenty of times when it would be useful.  

i did some light quilting on the outside but only because that tree just had perfect placement...completely by accident of course.  i thought the outside was looking pretty plain so i used a freezer paper stencil for that little flowery burst thingy.  i wish i had decided to do that before i installed the magnetic snap because it made it impossible to place it lower.  it ended up being a little bit bigger than i would like but i'm still excited to use it!!

i hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!!
