Roll fever

Just a quickie whilst we're on a roll about rolls.  I made this easy make-up brush roll earlier this year using this fab tutorial and I think I'll make a few more for xmas.  The photos aren't great and it was a first attempt, but hopefully you'll get the gist.

Two tips.  Firstly, use the same colour thread to do the brush pockets (it hides a multitude of wonky sewing sins!) Second, increase the length of ribbon by a good few inches than is recommended in the tutorial, as you can see above, it's barely long enough to tie a knot, never mind a bow.

Happy rolling! x
