Over the last few months I’ve had the chance to use my fabric makeup organizer in Portugal, Utah and Canada. So it’s well traveled, and works great at home too. My mom loves her new makeup organizer I sewed for her birthday, and I shared it in the Gift It series at Bugaboo Mini Mr and Me. You will find similar instructions on my last makeup holder tutorial, but there were some changes here, and I love the buckle closure maybe more than the tied version I did before. You should compare the two and see which you like best.
You will need:
- 2 coordinating fabrics. One inner, one outer. 2 fat quarters or 1/3 yards cut work great.
- iron-on (fusible) interfacing 10 x 20 inches, especially if one of your fabrics is lighter or slightly transparent (this is a popular one)
- vinyl fuse if you want to be able to wipe the inside clean, 10 x 20 inches (check price here)
- ribbon 20 inches long
- decorative buckle (mine came from scrapbooking supplies!)
- matching thread
With Christmas prep time coming up, I hope you guys will all find an excuse to make one of these soon 🙂
PS…I’m over at Craftaholics Anonymous today sharing Halloween Bean Bags….I hope you’ll head over and tell me what you think!
