Quick makeup bag pattern

This colorful DIY makeup bag is very easy to make and uses a simple to follow pattern. It’s basically a round piece of fabric lined and gathered with a pretty cord or ribbon. It only takes basic sewing skills to make it, so there’s no excuse not to try it. Add a small buttoned flap (optional) to keep it closed and that’s it! But rest assured, to make things easier and quicker for you I already made a makeup bag pattern!

It doesn’t look like it, but this mini scrunch sack pattern uses a little bit of fabric, so it’s not a scrap project as some might think. You might be able to use up some larger leftover pieces from older projects though, as well as strings or ribbon pieces waiting to be put to good use.

How to make this mini makeup sack more personal?

  1. Use this cute mini makeup sack as a handmade eco-friendly and reusable gift wrap made from a themed fabric or holidays or somebody’s birthday.
  2. Add a pretty bow, pompom, tassel, clasp or any decoration that would compliment the fabric and style of your makeup sack to make it even more personal.
  3. Use 100% cotton fabric for a day-to-day bag to make it machine washable. Brocades are great for gift bags, just keep in mind they are harder to clean. No matter which fabric you choose, just keep to non-stretch for this project.
