In the last few months, I’ve come to make several makeup bags. They’ve become the bread and butter of my sewing projects, which is probably why I’ve been able to get each one done in less than thirty minutes.
But since my last trip to the fabric store, I’ve become obsessed with this new cotton print, which I’ll call the Pineapple print. I love the look of this print! The bright colors are what drew me to it initially. But after I finished my first makeup bag with it, I fell in love with it. And so I made a few more projects with it…
I made a makeup brush roll that can fit up to six brushes (two eye brushes and four normal sized brushes, including a kabuki brush!) and rolls up on itself! It is fully line and took me about an hour to complete.
I even made one for myself with a zipper compartment for my lipstick. And then I made a pencil pouch:
I also filled this one with makeup brushes (seven including the kabuki brush) for the photo. But I think that this one can be used multiple ways…
Pens, pencils, accessories, makeup brushes, hair ties, USB drives…Anything little you need to keep safe/protected really! I made myself a zipper pouch out of a shamrock print for St. Patrick’s Day and I still use it every day to hold pens, sticky notes, and my other office tools.
And yes, I made another makeup bag. Both are the same size I usually make (8×10 inches) but in the pineapple print. There was even enough for a scrunchie after I made these projects from the one yard.
I know I’ll have to go back to get more of this fabric! I’ve been looking at other sewing projects to try with this print like pillows or headbands.
