30+ Makeup Bags & Rolls To Make: {Free Tutorials}

Posted By Tipnut On November 22, 2010 @ 2:31 am In Sewing | 6 Comments

Makeup bags are ideal to give as gifts and they’re quite handy for more than just cosmetics. I took my time selecting these free patterns and tutorials, making sure there’s a nice mix of everything: Some simple, some zipped, some larger, some small. There are a few crocheted and knitted but the bulk of them are sewn. For a treat I also included a few brush rolls at the bottom.
