Lips Makeup Bag

Now how’s this for adding a little humor to your everyday purse? This pouch, designed like zipped lips, is perfect for storing all your makeup!

It’s certainly not your ordinary cosmetic bag but it’s something anybody can definitely DIY! Those of you who know how to sew can most probably figure out how to make one by yourselves. While beginners on the other hand will find this tutorial very easy to follow. :)

You can choose any medium weight fabric colour of your choice. The best one of course is the one closest to your favourite lipstick shade. ;) And if you like your lip pouch to have ‘teeth’ like in the featured image make sure to get a white zipper.

Now this pouch is not just for those who wear makeup. It is also great for storing any other important/personal items since this little bag’s lips are sealed!

Want to make one for yourself? Head over to the tutorial linked below our album. And while you’re at it why not make a few more in different colours to give as gifts to family and friends?

You’ll need these materials:

  • Pattern
  • Medium Weight Fabric
  • Thread (to match the outer fabric colour)
  • 7″ Sport Zipper

And these tools:

  • Straight Pins
  • Needle
  • Fabric Scissors
