A friend makes her own spa products and I offered to make some lip balm holders for a craft sale she is doing this weekend.
I used this tutorial from Emmaline Bags.
The holders go together fairly quickly, and don't use much fabric. I did find the trickiest part was trying to make sure the lip balm fit when you are done. After some trial and error, I managed.
It is a really tight fit. I ended up using a "scant" 1/8" seam allowance.
I am amazed at how straight I managed to get it.
After you add Emmaline's fancy key fob hardware, they look great.
I think there is a nice selection of fabrics. A little over 1/4 m gone from my stash!
