So, this is my first post here in this forum, but not on Craftster and I made this awhile ago but thought I'd share Smiley Since Jan (when I made it) I've gotten quite a few more brushes and reorganized my makeup collection so I think I'll be making a new one to fit with my new brushes Smiley
rolled up Smiley

closeup on my horrid stitching. I'm still an uber noob at this sewing stuff and when I tried to do the ribbon as the tie to close the roll I ended up stitching it in wrong (right sides together, flip inside out, wrong sides stiched---AGHHHH) I'll master it soon hopefully.

open. without brushes

open. with brushes: it fits one mascara, a variety of brushes, tweezers, spooly, plus eyeliners Smiley


I used just scrap pieces of cloth (I actually think this is a pair of my brother's pj pants.) and followed the tutorial from SecretLifeOfABioNerd (who btw, I absolutely adore)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmbkwgV4Rb0

Next time I'm gunna make it bigger and perhaps put a flap so it'll protect the brushes from each other.

C/C welcome!

Excellent. 
I love personalized brush roll holders. 
And yours looks heaps good. 
Made ones can look so much better than the store bought ones, and the store ones that do look good are sooooo expensive. 
Plus, you know how many brushes you have, so you know what size to make everything. 

Actually I've been wondering what to make as a pressie for a friend of mine, you've just solved it. 

One note though.  You may want to sew a flap at the top that you can fold down over your brushes before you roll them up, otherwise they may fall out the top.

I love this idea. My brushes are always going missing, because of a certain kitty, and this is the answer to my prayers.  Wink

@ Rosemary, definitely gunna do a flap next time to protect the brushes from mingling with each other when it's rolled. I love that you can just toss it in the wash though when it gets dirty!

@ maidofspades, make sure you do a closure! then it makes it harder for teh kitteh to break in and steal the fluffy stuff  Cool I failed with mine but I don't have a kitteh so I don't have to worry as much  Cheesy

There is no such thing as a fail in sewing.  Just... room for learning.
