My version of "Canvas Paint Brush Holder"

I went to a couple of art shops last two days to get my art supplies and I also wanted to buy canvas paint brush holder. I saw one at Craft Haven and it is black in colour and a few at some art shops. Since it is not that nice to me and totally plain so I decided to sew one canvas paint brush holder for myself which I did last night.

All I did was, I cut my canvas material which I bought from Scrap-n-crop (well I have another 2 meters in stock which I get from the local art store) and the magic started. It is pretty simple as I folded here and there, iron a bit here and there so that it will be much easier to sew and I pasted the Dear Lizzy canvas fabric papers at every corner and further sewed on top of the canvas papers so that it will not go off easily. I don't have a step by step picture on this project but I managed to snap a few photos just to share with you guys.

I have yet to embellish since it was quite late last night, tonight I will paint or maybe do some magic again. Those picture below snapped using my iPhone hence the quality not that good. I promised once all done I will blog about this again. Presenting my handmade "canvas paint brush holder". This is also my 5th canvas project.

folded the side and top and ironed

I drew some lines (can't really see since it is in white colour) those lines are for the brush slots

lines finally sewed with blue thread

top view where I put a variety of Dear Lizzy fabric papers and sewed them (not that good on sewing, notice the uneven lines etc)

when you fold, it is actually cover the top part of the brushes

this is where the brushes goes into

you have to fold nicely and tie, in this picture I did not fold nicely because I want to give you some clear picture on how it looks like...

This is the one you will get from any art shop and once folded it will be like the one at the bottom

It is so easy to do and all you need just some imagination and probably a sewing machine. Have a great weekend!

I am so looking forward for my art class and tatting tomorrow.

    At first I would like to use grosgrain ribbon but I have too many ribbons to choose from. So I decided to use Dear Lizzy since it has self adhesive at the back & I just straight away sewed...
