I found this Round Makeup Case pattern by Candace from Crochet Spot. The description says that this makeup purse can hold separately mascara and lipstick that would be handy and easy to find in one's bag. I must have been attracted to the color of the item as featured in Crochet Spot that I didn't waste any time. After reviewing the pattern, I had it printed and the journey began.
Here is my finished product. Do you like it?
I really wanted exactly the same shade of pink Candace used in her post but I didn't have any in my stash. For my version, I used a combination of plain pink yarn and variegated purple cotton.
I was already working on the second half of the pattern (Row 13) when I realized I would like to have a smaller version that can accommodate 1 or 2 lipsticks instead of longer items like mascara. I had to unravel the yarn all the way back to Row 4. I shortened the process by 8 rounds (Rows 4-6 instead of 4-10, and Rows 12-15 instead of 12-18). For all the other rounds, I followed the pattern as instructed.

Oh, by the way, I have already made two pieces. In this photo, I still haven't fastened the buttons.
Another perfect gift to friends? Exactly! So why don't you start making some now? Don't wait 'til the Christmas countdown begins. You might be another victim of the holiday rush!!!
Have a great week ahead!
