This is a really useful little roll-up organiser originally intended as just a makeup bag, but useful for so much more. It has a special pocket that will hold a packet of face wipes whilst allowing you to unseal and reseal the packet. It also has two clear pockets with gussets that will expand to hold several small items and allow you to see what is in there. The whole thing rolls up and ties with a strap.
Whilst we were designing this it occurred to us that it is a great make-up bag but could have so many uses; a first aid kit for instance. The pattern is structured so that you can add, subtract or swap pockets to suit your needs which makes it really useful.
This project is ideally suited to woven fabrics. The clear plastic in the pockets could be substituted with net, lace or even a contrast fabric if you don’t want to see in. It would be an ideal project to use up scraps of fabric as only the outer cover is in one piece.
