I made the following useful item with a specific intent. You see, my sister has just recently completed cosmetology school, and I felt she deserved a congratulatory gift. And thus, I fashioned her this makeup brush clutch.

As I completed the project I realized it would be just as useful as a travel pouch for my sewing supplies.
(It is also very reminiscent of other knitting/crochet needle/hook organizer located elsewhere on craftster)

Though I am now questioning my colour choices, I believe it worked out quite well. It should be a hit with the sister.
Thank you for stopping to take a look.

I give you credit just for figuring out how to put something like that together!  It would take me so long just to figure out the pattern- let along making the actual thing without confusing myself.  Good work.

I could likely do a tutorial, but it may take me some time to put together, so it is probably in my best interest not to promise anything. I will try.
Thank you for all the encouraging comments.
My sister was quite elated to be receiving it. Her appreciation definitely made all the effort worthwhile.
