Drawstring Makeup Pouch
"This crochet drawstring makeup bag pattern is quick to work up with size 5 yarn and simple, increasing rounds. It makes a cute and stylish way to pack makeup for travel, or just store in the bathroom. It is very functional, while also doubling as a decorative piece.
Note: Because of the large circumference of this piece that gets cinched shut, it does not close up completely on top and tightness may depend on the kind of yarn used (a softer yarn will have more flex). The ruffled top is intended to give a little extra coverage to the opening, but ultimately this bag will do a good job holding standard makeup items, but may not be good for carrying tiny items (like jewelry or safety pins, etc) that might escape more easily."
