We’ve been inspired to drop a bit of paperwork and to-do lists with this hint (some days!) of spring and get to MAKING things again! Today Emily reviews a DIY Makeup Brush Holder tutorial below using some really perfect fabric from Modern Textiles…hope your spring is filled with making and creating as well!
“I saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it would be an easy-ish project that I could at least attempt without help (warning: new seamstress here!). I followed the pattern for the most part, though I smudged a little on measurements as I wanted to use my scraps from a previous project that the lovely ladies at Modern Textiles had helped me with.
Overall, it was a simple piece to make. I made a few different sizes of pockets – I didn’t measure with a ruler, just with my brushes. It wasn’t until the very last seam that my sewing machine decided it was SO OVER this project and refused to work anymore. I decided to just hand-stitch the top with big, obvious stitches as I was traveling over the weekend and wanted to use this! The hand stitching ended up actually “making” the piece for me – adding more character and a more handmade look.
This was a quick, easy project that I see being very useful. I am thinking it would even make a really great gift for future birthdays and perhaps for my sister’s wedding (she mentioned as a bridesmaid gift).” – Unglued Crew Emily
