Have you been looking for a way to tidy up your messy makeup drawer? Tired of using several different "not quite right" storage solutions to keep your personal stuff organized? You probably never would have guessed how easy it is just to make yourself something that suits your needs perfectly. Moreover, when it gets a little grungy over time, you can just throw it in the washing machine! Whether you want something to sit permanently on your counter at home to organize your makeup and day to day personal care stuff or whether you want something lightweight that you can throw into your suitcase for use when you travel, this REVERSIBLE Crafty Cosmetics Caddy is your answer. (Note that this can also be used as a purse or desktop organizer. )
If you've sewn practically anything at all in the past, this project is for you. There is nothing intimidating here... just simple straight line stitches, no zippers, no buttons, no fasteners... and all of the required pattern pieces are rectangular. What can be easier?
The finished caddy size is approximately 8" long by 3" wide x 4" high, but the pattern provides instruction for resizing if you want something bigger/smaller.

A budding seamstress in my youth, I abandoned the hobby for almost three decades. Then I discovered that people sewed "stuff" besides clothes and quilts. What an eye-opener! The discovery led to a personal sewing journey... one that has seen me progress from student to designer. Check in with me every Saturday morning to see what new discoveries I've made and soak up inspiration from freebies that you won't find here. (P.S. Looking for the best deal? My patterns are ALWAYS sale priced directly from my blog... some are even free!) Check it out at esheepdesigns.blogspot.com
