Let's Get Started

Step 1

Gather your materials.

Step 2

Fold your fabric in half, then fold it half once again. You should have four layers of fabric. Fold one inch of the bottom edge up.

Step 3

Fold the bottom edge of the panel up to the top edge, leaving about two and a half inches at the top. This will be your first pocket.

Step 4

Fold the new bottom edge of the panel up to the top edge, leaving about two and a half inches from the first fold, to create the second pocket.

Step 5

Tightly roll the edges in to create a clean edge. I rolled mine twice to hide any raw edges. Pin the rolled fabric to secure it in place.

Step 6

Make sure to work the ribbon into one side. The ribbon will hold your paint brush rolls shut.

Step 7

Whip-stitch around the rolled fabric to secure it.

Step 8

Now is the fun part: Consider your paint brush carrying needs and build pockets accordingly by cross stitching at various points to create smaller compartments.

Step 9

Start organizing your brushes.
