My makeup drawer had gotten out of control. It needed a little spring cleaning.
I made it turn into this!
Here’s how to make these little makeup organizers.
Cut out your fabric depending on the size you want. I cut out two pieces each 9×7. Sew them together on the sides on bottom, making little pouches. To label them, I got magazine cutouts. I wanted 3 pouches, one for skin makeup, one for lips, and one for eye makeup.
*Side Note* You could make these for your kids with cute pictures of them in the plastic labels. Or snack pictures, etc… Think of all the options for labeling!
Then I got some plastic sheeting. I found some inside a business folder. They also sell plastic, but I bet you could find some around your house! Cut them in little squares, depending on your labels.
Place them on the front of your fabric pouches.
Stitch in place.
Now for the inside of my pouch I used waterproof lining. Make another pouch insert like you did the outside. You could use any kind of fabric, I just thought the waterproof would be great for traveling and it’s so easy to wipe it down.
Turn the outside of the pouch and the liner inside out. Insert the liner into the pouch. Trim the fabric so they are the exact same size.
Stitch all the way around the top leaving an opening enough for you to get your hand in to turn right side out.
Pull it through your opening.
I like to use velcro to close things like this. With a zipper, I get to lazy and just won’t close it. This way it closes automatically when I put it back in my drawer. I also like to use the sew on velcro, not the sticky kind. You could do a zipper or snaps, too.
So get some velcro the length that you want it.
Pin it in place.
Stitch all the way around the top and the bottom of the velcro.
Now you have perfect organizers for whatever you need them for!
I love organization!
