Makeup Brush Roll

I didn't make too many Christmas gifts this year, which was surprisingly liberating. I do love making gifts, but I just end up putting so much pressure on myself to make "the perfect thing".

In any case, here's one pressure-free gift that I did make. I used a modification of this tutorial.

I used a couple of coordinating Joel Dewberry fabrics (I'm obsessed with the herringbone fabric).

And what is super-awesome about using this fabric for a brush roll is that I was able to hide the seams for the brush pockets. They vary in size, which is perfect for brushes that vary in size. High kicks for that!

See? You can't even see the seams!!

This project will take you all of 30 minutes (at most), and if you're not a makeup brush person, you can use it for knitting needles, colored pencils, or even your chopstick collection! :)

Love this, I've been thinking of making a couple of these as crayon holders for the kids I take care of. Love it as a brush holder though, I have a couple of friends I think would love one.
