DIY Makeup Organizer Bag
DIY craft ideas are the perfect way to show your individuality, creativity and uniqueness, like this fun DIY makeup organizer bag. Whether you call it a makeup kit, a toiletry bag or your weekend kit, it’s the bag that houses all your skincare essentials is a must. And we're not just talking about the same falling-apart plastic bag you've been busting out for the last three years.
Now, let’s get making! Here’s what you’ll need to get started to make your DIY makeup organizer bag:
- 11-inch zipper
- iron-on transfer paper
- Brit + Co beauty bag printable (download here)
- sewing machine
- sewing pins
- measuring tape
Don't be intimidated by the zipper part of this -- we'll take you through it!
1: Fold canvas in half, and draw a half circle on the fold line. Ours measured 8 1/2 inches in height x 10 inches in length. Then cut out.
2: Measure the circumference of the half circle. Add two inches to that measurement to cut out a strip of canvas that is 6 inches wide. Our strip measured 26 inches x 6 inches.
3: Cut that rectangle in half and sew back together with a 1 1/2 inch hem.
4: Find the middle of the rectangle and pin the zipper upside down. Sew a complete rectangle around the zipper.
5: Take the seam ripper and remove the seam that covers the zipper.
6: Pin the rectangle to the circumference of your half circle bag. Make sure that good sides face in.
7: Then sew.
8: Turn the bag inside out.
9: Then cut out the iron-on decals and iron onto your new makeup organizer bag!
DONE: Enjoy your new personalized makeup bag!
