Painting brush roll up case tutorial

This painting brush roll up case can be done using the thread sketches I did last two posts or just with plain fabric.

The sizes given are for a roll up case that uses the thread sketches pieces.

Square Miro sketch.

Square Picasso sketch.

Now stitch together.

Iron flat.

At this stage your rectangle will be about 10 1/2 in x 21 3/4 in.

Cut a 4 1/2 in x 21 1/4 in strip.

Pin to the top of the rectangle.

Stitch and iron flat.

You will obtain a 15 in x 21 3/4 in rectangle approximately.

Now cut another rectangle the same size as the previous one for the inside/lining.


Cut a 21 3/4in x 7in rectangle for the pockets.

Make a seam on the top edge by rolling 1/4 inches in and then again. Top stitch.

Place the pocket rectangle over the lining piece.

Pin to the bottom edge.

Using a pen, mark the pocket inserts. Make marks at different intervals from 1 1/2 inches to 1/4 inches.

Stitch along the lines.

Now place a 21 inch piece of ribbon over the lining at about the middle of the rectangle’s short side.

Place the sketches side over the lining with both right sides of lining and sketches facing together.

Pin the ribbon in place.

Pin all around.

Stitch all around leaving a 1/4 inch seam allowance.

Leave a 3 inch opening to turn inside out.

Trim the corners.

Turn inside out.

Iron well.

Top stitch all around at 1/4 in from the edge.

Stitch a button next to the ribbon.

The roll up is done.

Place your brushes inside.

Fold the top over to prevent the brushes from falling off.

Roll up the folder and you’re done!
