Designing a pouch pattern

The other day I saw this make up pouch with round shapes that was standing up. I loved the design and decided to give it a try to draw a pattern to make something similar. It's not perfect yet, but it worked out quite like I expected, and I'm proud of what I made.

On the inside is a beautiful, slightly tacky lining. I won't show you the details however - I still have to practice more in making pouches, getting the zipper in neatly and working with bias binding :) This took me to on a short but interesting sidepath to quilting by the way...

The zipper was used before and when the pouch was almost finished it broke of. I attached two hemp strings to fix this. All in all it's an experiment. But not a bad one for a first time.
