Felted Wool (What Else?) Zip Cosmetic Bag

I love wool! I made this cosmetic zip bag from a recycled wool felted sweater. It is very soft. I cut two pieces 5 x 8" and sewed in a zipper at the top. I applied the felted flowers on the front side, then sewed the edges together with a simple zig zag stitch.
Then I sewed a felted ball onto the zipper pull. And that is it! Now it is ready to hold my cosmetics, my cell phone and charger, or whatever else I need to stow away!Here is a close up of the inside...the back of the bag is just plain green.
This is a great way to use old wool sweaters!
