I love having a lip balm with me in winter. But hate scrabbling about in the bottom of my bag to find it. This little chapstick pouch means that you can clip it somewhere that you can easily find it.

They make perfect gifts at any time of year, and are great to sell at craft fairs too. Make them for your favourite teacher, your mum for Mother’s Day, or for Christmas gifts. And also, don’t forget to make them for your favourite man, as they get chapped lips too!

These chapstick holders are so quick and easy to whip up, and because they don’t use much fabric, they are a brilliant scrap buster.

So here is how to make your own!

Materials needed for lip balm holder

Cut two identical pieces from from your washed and ironed cloth piece. If the cloth you are using is quite thin, consider cutting a piece of interfacing too.

Lip balm holder part 1

Place the two pieces of cotton right sides together and pin. If using interfacing, place this on top of both pieces of outer material.

Lip balm holder part 2

Leaving a gap of about 2 inches (4-5cm) in once side, sew all the way around your material sandwich. Remember to backstitch at either end of the stitching.

Lip balm holder part 3

Clip the corners and snip into the curves slightly to help make the corners crisp. Turn the whole piece inside out so that the right sides of material show. Press out the corners with a pencil or sharp point. Give the whole thing a good press.

Lip balm holder part 4

Fold up the long section of the fabric almost but not quite in half. Sew a 4-5mm seam down each side, forming a pouch. This closes the gap we left open for turning, and makes the pouch for the lip balm.

Then fold over the whale tail at the other end, place your bag clip at this stage and sew in place. Backstitch at either end for stability and security.

And you have a finished lip balm holder! I also find that these are large enough for some tiny tubes of hand cream, so it is perfect for having clipped to my bag next to my hand sanitiser gel holder.

    What a cute idea! I’d been addicted (yes, that’s right) to Vaseline for years and I’d reapply from the tin so regularly each day that my lips would actually be painful if I went two hours without it. Thankfully I’ve kicked the habit and moved on to regular lip balms in tubes now so I’d love to make one of these to hold one of the Carmex balms in. Funky DIY make! x
