To get your week off to a fab start, we’ve got a killer DIY from our girl Amy of Homey Oh My! Trust, you’re definitely going to want to try this at home!
Make this easy makeup pouch WITHOUT a sewing machine! It’s perfect for carrying your everyday essentials, and you can customize the design with this hand-drawn leopard spot pattern inspired by the new Emily & Meritt Collection for PBteen.
-7 inch zipper
-fabric (a heavier, cotton, outdoor fabric is best)
Step 1: Measure and cut an 8×11″ piece of fabric.
Step 2: Referring online to the Emily & Merritt leopard dot sheets, draw similar shapes onto your fabric with a fabric marker. Place a piece of paper or a magazine underneath the fabric to protect your surface.
Step 3: Turn the fabric face down and iron back about a half inch of the fabric on the side thats 8 inches long.
Step 4: With the fabric still facing down, place the zipper across the middle and apply a line of fabric glue down each side of the zipper.
Step 5: Fold each side of the fabric over on top of the glue and press firmly. Let the glue dry before proceeding to the next step.
Step 6: Unzip the zipper and turn the fabric inside out.
Step 7: Apply fabric glue along both open sides of the pouch and press down firmly onto the fabric. Let the glue dry completely before moving on to the next step.
Step 8: Cut off any excess ends on the zipper and turn the pouch inside out.
Step 9: Fill the pouch with your favorite makeup or even small school supplies!
