my way of making a makeup roll "Tutorial"

A few days ago i was thinking to make some thing for my elder sister who lives abroad and i end up making a makeup Roll for her ,you will find many tutorials in the blog land for making a make up brush roll but the rebellion inside me urged to try one out my own way and to add a bit of a personal touch to it so instead of a brush roll i decided to make a MAKE UP ROLL. Many of you might think that may be its not the right way but the funny thing is that it turned out just great ,hears the tutorial.

first of all you will be needing 4 peices of fabric ,2for the outer part and two for the lining the larger peices will make the body of the roll and the small peices will make the pockets for the makeup.You will also need half a yard of some coordinating colored ribbon.

join the little pieces together fold and give it a top stitch.

put this prepared piece on the large lining piece of fabric ,mark the pockets according to the sizes of ur makeup stuff and stitch on these markings . Fold all the four edges towards the wrong side.

place the prepared pockets on the main fabric ,also fold all the sides of the main fabric towards the wrong side too,look at the pictures above!

pin these all together fold the ribbon in half and insert it in the right side secure it with a pin and top stitch all around the four sides of your make up roll.

ready to use


well the holly month of Ramadan has started so i decided to be fully honest with u people :)
there is one mistake i made as you might have noticed that i inserted the ribbon in the middle of the right side which gave me a result like this

not good :( the ribbon tie has to be in the middle ,so i had to pick up the stitches of this side and removed the ribbon from this spot and inserted it where the pocket starts and stitched again .

and this time i am finally happy with it .
if you want to see the tutorial for the makeup brush roll which originally inspired me then go to "Skip To My Lou" and see her tutorial
enjoy your crafting time ......
