And what differentiates a toiletry bag from a simple zippered pouch is that it's
usually designed with a wide opening that allows you to easily see and access the
bag's contents. Plus, there's also that familiar boxy shape that allows the bag to
easily sit upright on a counter or tabletop.
However, that three-dimensional boxy shape is what can also make a toiletry bag a

resistant. Just remember that when sewing vinyl, use a leather needle in your
sewing machine and pin only within the seam allowances or use binder clips to hold
the material together. You may also want to use a walking foot in your machine to
help feed the material better.
And consider adding a tab or small handle to the side of your toiletry bag so that it
can be hung or easily carried.
