Just like the pros, but without the guilt of cost, you can sew up a simple makeup brush roll. All you need are a few supplies that, if you don't have around the house, you can easily pick up at a fabric store. Best part is that you get to pick out the fabric and lace of your choice!
This tutorial comes from Katie of Made to be a Momma. According to her, this easy and fun diy project can be done in about an hour, maybe even less time.
1/2 yard of fabric cut into the measurements shown below.
Ribbons or Fabric
Start off by cutting your makeup brush roll fabric pieces into the measurements below.
Take your pocket piece and fold in half. Lay the pocket on top of your main piece of fabric. Make sure the pretty sides are facing up. Use your makeup brushes, if possible, to measure how wide to make the little pockets. If you don’t have makeup brushes with you, 1 inch wide pockets will work fine. Pin a few pins in place and sew from the top of the pocket down. Make sure you backstitch at the top of your pocket piece to secure the thread nicely.
The measurements I used for this brush roll fits 10 makeup brushes with a nice size pocket at the end. Feel free to adjust your measurements if necessary. Attach your velcro pieces to the pocket spot by sewing it in place or using fabric glue.
Fold your pocket piece back over and cut your two ribbons or lace pieces used to tie your brush roll. Lay your two pieces of lace/ribbon slightly above your pocket piece. Lay your outside piece of fabric on top making sure the pretty sides touch.
Sew around all four sides of your makeup brush roll making sure to leave a three inch gap for turning. Turn your roll right side out and press with a hot iron. Top stitch around your roll closing the three inch gap.
Let me know what you think of this really cute tutorial! Thank you!
