Hi all! I'm Krisa and I'm a college student. I'm also a (sometimes) Pinterest addict! Lucky for me, I found these two tutorials on Pinterest that are quick and easy and adorable!
First off, being a busy college student, I have a TON of pencils, pens, highlighters floating around my backpack that need to be wrangled. So, when I found this tutorial http://sweet-verbena.blogspot.com/2011/10/charmed-pencil-pouch-tutorial-and-etsy.html I freaked! It's exactly what I need, not to mention super easy to make!
I wanted it to be a little funky and fun, hence the crazy multiple fabrics. I don't want my school supplies to be boring if I can make them fun! (Especially since I LOVE my classes this semester!)
After I got done with that, I realized that I have had two fabrics sitting in my sewing room since before Christmas. My best friend's birthday happens to be the day AFTER Christmas. I had made her a ton of cute gifts for Christmas, but wanted to make her something for her birthday as well. Long story short, I got really busy with school and life and such and didn't get to make her the bday gift I had planned on. Sooooo, I decided a few days ago, it's time I get on it and make something for her. My best friend has a ton of makeup and a ton of nail polish. So, I wanted to make her a bag that she can use for either of those.
I found this tutorial online- http://www.noodle-head.com/2010/10/scrappy-make-up-pouch-tutorial_20.html and thought it was pretty cute, although I didn't box the corners at the bottom, since I wanted her to have as much room as she needs to hold stuff!
Enter the land of really pretty colors and patterns!
I had some fabric left over, so I decided to make her a small bag for her makeup brushes. I used the same pattern that I had used for my pencil bag.
They aren't perfect, but I'm loving each of these bags, none-the-less! Thanks for looking!
