My amazingly talented cousin Claire, who’s behind all my videos, is the master-mind behind The Kitchy Kitchen. It’s filled with wonderful recipes, lifestyle tips, beautiful photography, and now a collaboration with yours truly. I’m so excited to be a part of her monthly beauty series and this month I show you how to sew your own makeup bag. Check out the article on her blog, and read below!
Makeup bags are one of the easiest things to make yourself. If you ever made a pillow as a kid, think of this as the easier, grown up version. You can pick your fabric, zipper, and thread color and can be personalized for a super affordable, but great gift. Since you only need about a 1/2 yard of fabric, peruse the scrap bin at your local fabric store. You can get some amazing pieces for a lot cheaper (even real leather!). I scored this pretty beige and gold fabric for $2.00.
