A Mermaid Swam By

Hello, May, I’m so happy you are here. May heralds breathing time for me, this year is no different. Oh, the joy of this month! To celebrate, I’ve begun working on my little list of projects with summer in mind.

First on my list was making a cosmetic brush case using two different fabrics from Heather Bailey’s Mendocino line retrieved from my stash. I followed the very easy instructions found in a tutorial created by Juliette Landers of Sewing Republic which was posted on Tipnut.

Heavy-weight Peltex was used for interfacing and a magnetic snap for the closure. The case unfolds to reveal numerous pockets sewn inside.

I have a good set of Chanel makeup brushes, but I love Sonia Kashuk's Hidden Treasure Brush Set—the coral design is so perfect for my ocean-themed project. I purchased the coral brushes at Target a few years ago.
