New Video: Round Drawstring Makeup Bag and Happy National Bias Tape Day


Not really. I just made that National Bias Tape Day thing up. But don’t you think there should be!??!!

I know it’s weird, but can I get an AMEN if you like making bias tape as much as I do? For some reason, it’s just comforting to cut fabric on a 45 degree angle, fold, press and wrap those miles of tape around a small pieces of cardboard. Then placing all that pretty edging side by side in a basket or a box. It’s just so delightful! Even if I never use it, I could just look at it all day…

Beth! Snap out of it!!!

Oh, yes, I’m here…

How about really rolling your socks up and down by combining bias tape, being organized and traveling?!!?

Well, you can when you make this round drawstring makeup bag.

There’s just something beautiful about being organized, too. It makes you feel healthier, happier and gives you more time to do the things you love. This drawstring makeup bag will help you on your way to feeling more organized and will make it simple to sort, pack, and access your cosmetics anytime. Whether you’re traveling or at home, it will lie flat so you can see all of your makeup while you get ready and then cinch up for a stylish way to store all of your beauty products.

Happy National Bias Tape Day! 🙂

    I watched the bias tape making video…very cool. There were references to a second post to show projects using the bias tape, but I can’t find it. Did I misread?

    I love this and want to make it in the size you have, but I can’t seem to find the dimensions anywhere? Lots of photos with the pattern but no sizes? Also, have you made this with PUL on the inside for easy cleaning? How would it go, too bulky?

    • Thank you so much for the heads up on this Teri. I checked it out and the dimensions section is missing. I’ll check and see if I can remedy the issue ASAP.

    • Here is a list of the things you’ll need for this project.
