Lip Balm Holder Sewing Tutorial
Use a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
Cut 2 main piece from fabric. Use the same or two different fabrics. Cut 1 keychain tab piece from a third fabric.
Back 1 main and the tab pieces with fusible interfacing.
Fold the tab piece in half with the shorter edges matching. Sew.
This tube can be tricky to to turn – use a safety pin in the edge of the tube and thread it through itself.
Press well with the seam on the back.
Loop the tab through the keyring and sew the ends together.
Center the tab at the top of the chapstick holder as shown.
Sandwich the tab with the second chopstick holder piece and pin.
Sew around the chapstick holder 1/4″ from the edges, pivoting at each corner. Leave an opening about 2″ wide on one of the long edges closer to the top of the chapstick holder.
Clip corners and turn right side out. Press well focusing on aligning the edges of the opening.
Fold the bottom of the chapstick holder up, leaving 3/4″ at the top of the pocket.
Be sure your edges are lined up and the opening edges are flush with the edge. Topstitch on both side edges of the chapstick holder, backstitching at both ends of your stitching.
Slip your chapstick in the pocket and it’s ready to use!
