Makeup/ Makeup Brush Roll - Great for travel or hanging at home
This is a makeup/ makeup brush holder that rolls up and can also be hung.
It's great for travel and having your stuff handy on the go.
It's also awesome for organizing your brushes or makeup if you have limited space.
I made it out of one piece of fabric, so the lining is the same as the outside, but you can use two different types if you prefer.
I've put in quite a few steps for guidance, but most of them are fairly obvious.
I hope you enjoy this!

Cut a rectangular piece of fabric. I used cotton,but you can go for something sturdier if you like.
These are the dimensions I used:
40 x 75 cm (metric) or 16 x 30 inches
This depends on the amount and size of items you want to store. I went for 5 large pockets and 10 small ones. If you just want to store a few brushes or eyeliners you can make it a lot smaller.
I find it's better to have more - you'll always be able to fill the spaces instead of running out.
Fold fabric in half with the fold on the bottom side.
Fold the bottom (where the first fold is) upwards. This will be the part that holds the brushes.
I went for an 11 cm or 4.5 inch fold. Test on your brushes or makeup to decide your length.
You can use an iron to make the creases stand out. I find it helps me keep the fabric in place.
Sew at the bottom of the second crease you made. (shown at the very bottom of the picture in the previous step)
Open the fabric. You will have a sewn fold in the middle. This is the part that will hold the brushes.
You do this in order to prevent the stitching of the pockets going through to the back of the brush roll. It looks a lot nicer this way.
Hem the sides and attach the ties. It's a good idea to use pins to keep all the pieces in place. You can also iron the folds to make your job easier.
Pay attention to your tie placement.
They are placed relatively low because the top part folds to cover the brushes, so the ties area actually in the middle of the roll.
