Today, I wanted to share a fun super EASY sewing tutorial.  If you have never sewn before this is definitely the project for you!  Even if you are a more advance sewer this will still be a fun project!  
How many of you women lose your chapstick?  Maybe it's me?--but i'm thinking its not.  Sometimes I don't lose my chapstick but it gets buried in the deep diaper bag or left in the "date" purse.  Well today, I bring you the chapstick cozy! It's complete with a simple d-ring to hook on to any key chain, purse, diaper bag, or even a kids school backpack!

To make you own Chapstick Cozy you need to cut two 2in. x 9in. strips of fabric.  
You will also need 2in. size D-rings.



Lay your two pieces right sides (pretty sides)  together. Sew around 3 of the 4 sides with a 1/4 in seam.  Clip corners and turn right side out.  Press with hot iron. Fold up your closed end about 2 1/2 inches. Sew down both sides as close to the edge as you can.

Take your unfinished edge and fold under about 1/4 inch.

 Loop the end around your D-ring and sew in place.
Enjoy!

Thanks so much, Katie!
