--Finishing off--

Sc around the piece with 3sc in each corner and sewing up the sides of the pockets as you go. On
the top row (1st chained row) make a ch10 loop above each button.

Having only at the ripe old age of 23 begun investing in make-up and the required tools, I realised I needed somewhere to store my brushes and other potions, so I devised this cunning solution using leftover cotton yarn from other projects.

It has 10 brush holes as well as a lower pocket idea for eyeliners and the like, and is made to be wrapped around a clothes hanger.
