My Self-Made Brush Roll!


Well-known member
Hi! So after I really started getting into brushes, I quickly outgrew my little glass that I put them in. And I fell in love with the idea of a brush roll!

So I spent New Years day in a mother-daughter bonding activity with my mom and we came up with this!
She figured out the construction and pressed the material and I did all the sewing. I swear, not even when I was working at a drycleaners did I get poked with so many pins!

Anyhoo, here is the finished roll!! It has about 60 spaces, four rows of elastic bands, and took about $17 worth of materials and 5 1/2 hours of quality time with my mom. HeeHee, I am such a dork sometimes.

And sorry about my carpet, I know I need to vacuum it!

Oh thank you! I actually got the material at my Jo-Anns. It was on clearance for $4/yard, then an additional 50% off! There was no way I could pass it up!
