Sew Cute!

Yesterday, I spent the whole day pattern making, sewing and thinking. I ended up making a travel brush roll and a few other things.


Here's a close up of the fabric that I used... Very cute and shabby chic!


It has a total of 9 pockets, 4 being large and 5 being small. I used wadding for the pockets for a soft snug fit. This is just a sample, I still need to re evaluate a few things, and create a master pattern.
How many pockets do you think a travel brush roll needs and would you prefer more padding for a firmer structure?



Here's how it looks all rolled up! I'm thinking a patchwork brush roll will also look cute, what do you think?
I also want to make a roll up earring holder / jewellery organiser in keeping with this concept, what do you think? I'm so obsessed about organising, so why not create my own range? *Wishful thinking!*


I also made this little pouch with a side pocket, it can be looped onto your dressing table handle, inside a cupboard or wherever else. I'm going to be using this one to store my cotton rounds! You can even put cotton buds in there and anything else that needs to look pretty!


I also made these little fabric applique designs, this one is a penguin in case you couldn't guess :) I'm planning on making snowmen, hearts, birds and anything else I deem to be cute. The main purpose, is to decorate Christmas stockings that I am thinking of making.


Here's the fabric I'm working with this week!


I'm thinking of making some of these to sell as I am a little bit bored of making jewellery at the moment, and sewing is my new hobby.

Would you be interested in any of the products? Price range will be approx £5- £10.

If you have any requests and would like some input into the design, do let me know!!! I can also do personalised initials from the applique if requested.

Small Town Gal said...

I would absolutely buy a brush roll the second you offered them up as I've been wanting for a while now, but dislike the plain black ones you see on various websites.

Caroline said...

I would love a bag/liner with lots of pockets which you can organise your stuff in and when u want to change handbags just change the liner with your stuff in, does that make sense?!!

WinterBlossom said...

I love the brush roll! So pretty. :) Love the sound of a jewellery holder-thingy. I'd defo buy that. :) xxx

hinaichigo said...

Eliza said...

natalya said...

These are so pretty! I definitely think you should make more, I would love to get one, especially if you decide to personalize them with initials and such. It is always lovely to see someone being passionate about what they make, and you always have the best organising ideas so I am excited to see what else you come up with sweetie :) xxx

Lorien BeautyLove said...

WOW that makeup roll looks lovely! that is such a great idea!!! x

TheMakeup101s said...

im totaly going to make one!

Ella Pretty said...

I love the fabric that you used - such an improvement over the usual boring black fabric make-up brush holders!

Cherish said...

You are so talented! I'd love one with my intials!x

Elizabeth said...

What gorgeous fabric and your designs are superb! Really inspiring. I like to keep all my long stick-like stuff in my brushroll when travelling, so pencils, mascara and lipgloss too if it can fit. It makes it more bulky, but if I'm good I can just add a palette and that's all I take.
I've one suggestion for your 'product line'. Could you make a little matching pouch for a kabuki brush? That would be brilliant. :-)

M. said...

Yessss i would definitly buy a brush roll. Its soooo super cute!!

EngineeringFashionista said...

The makeup brush holder is really cute! You're so talented!! I think padding the rolls would be good. I currently use a makeup brush holder that I still have to pad with clothes when I travel just to prevent the brush tips from being squished and bent, lol!

Rocaille said...

These are so beautiful hun, I love the fabric and the design as well! I'd be defo intrested in your whole range in the future, especially that my earrings need some serious re-organizing!

Rumysa hussain said...

woah muhsinae, you always blow me away with something or the other.. i absolutely love the brush roll and the pouch! sewing is hard and i'm so impressed with what you can come up with... give your 'orginizing obsession' a serious go!! xxx

Rumysa hussain said...

oops...i spelt your name wrong, sorry!!

Sarah x said...

I would definitely be interested in those little cases to hang of drawer handles, you can't buy things like that in a shop (well I have never seen them)! So definitely xx

Daisy said...

I would love a brush holder with my initials! I adore the fabric!!X
