A Make-up Roll

Make-up Roll

Yesterday, I made a Make-up Roll. I used this lovely pattern by Rachel Hauser from Stitched in Color. You should know that I made it for a person who loves hedgehogs so I used a linen hedgehog print I had on hand.

Make-up Roll

The pattern has a number of pocket variations. This roll is primarily designed to hold nice brushes and it works really nicely. It is a bit fussy to make but I was able to start and finish in about 2 hours.

The fold over flap is the best part, it keeps the brushes and other things from falling out the side of the roll and shows off your lovely fabric nicely too. The linen did make sewing it a bit harder, next time I will bring out my walking foot.

It was really nice to make a small project and be finished it all in one sitting, a good way to ease back into regular sewing.

I hope you enjoyed your new year's celebrations, and I wish everyone the best for this coming year.

Best,

Leanne

So cute! Love the hedgehog fabric and the idea of a make-up roll instead of a make-up bag. I'd never have thought of a roll for anything but the brushes!
