I made this felt makeup to help my 2 year old granddaughter through the chicken pox. She loved it. I let her pick from patterned felt and sewed sew-on "gems" to the tops to add a little sparkle. The makeup case was bought from a second hand store for a dollar and was brand new, still with the tags on. I bought new $1 brushes from WalMart. I did blanket stitch across the folds to make the "cases" close. The little one has had a lot of fun with it and it can be stored with her "beauty salon" that is in her room. I might add that this makeup case has a mirror inside the lid, but you could sew silver fabric in the compacts to simulate a mirror if you wanted, or buy a safe mirror at the Dollar store.


  1. Is there a way to print out the patterns?

  2. Okay, I know this is lame, but I actually don't know how to print out the patterns, but other people have told me you can. You really wouldn't need the patterns if you found things that shape (or any shape you want) and traced them onto paper. Just do 2 to sew together. I actually made this play makeup to fit into a makeup case I found, but it can be any size you want. For the blush, lip gloss etc, just trace small circles or rectangles or squares. OR talk to someone more computer savvy than I am. I did these patterns on copy paper, so supposedly they print out on copy paper. Sorry I am not more help.
