Hi there! Do you love quick sewing projects? If so, this is a great project for you!
If you know me, then you know I have an unhealthy addiction to chapstick. I always have chapstick in my pocket--no matter what! I also keep some handy in my purse, and also on my nightstand. So when I saw these chapstick cozies, I knew I had to make one!
This is a super quick project! I think it took me 15 minutes at the most to whip this up (and that included taking pictures as I went). These would make great gifts because they are so easy and really affordable.
So let's get started!
2 pieces of fabric cut 2" x 7" (if using quilting cotton, use interfacing on your pieces)
1 - 2" piece of coordinating ribbon
1 - Key ring
Step 1: Fold your 2" ribbon in half and sew onto one of your pieces. (place about 1/4" from the edge)
Step 2: Place your two pieces right sides together, making sure you tuck your ribbon down.
Step 3: Sew along three sides 1/4" and then click your corners. (Be sure to sew along the side that is the top where your ribbon is)
Step 4: Turn right side out and press. Also fold in bottom side that is not sewn and press and sew an 1/8" seam to close it shut.
Step 5: Fold the bottom up two inches and pin. Then sew along the sides to create your little chapstick pocket.
That's all! Seriously, this is a 15 minute project! It doesn't really get any quicker than that!
I'm off to whip up a bunch more of these for gifts!
Talk to you soon,
