Jewellery bags - a tutorial

Last year, my Mum sent me one of these jewellery bags that she'd made. 


She'd seen them around and decided to try making one for me.  I loved it - and so had a go of making one myself! 
This year, I'm slowly working through things and getting patterns made up.  This week I made one for the jewellery bag - which,  since I didn't do this last year, I had to figure out all over again!

I thought since Valentine's Day is next week, I may put some on my market stall this weekend. 
My girls have also been asking for one each for ages  - so there's those to make too!

They really are cute, with the little pockets inside:

Which I have nicely stuffed in the one I made last year!



All this pattern making is finally putting my daughter's pile of artwork from Kindy two years ago to good use!  I knew I was keeping it for a reason...

Here's a  shot of today's bag in our sunny garden - so nice to see the sun again after days of rain and a cyclone!!


If you would like the tutorial for this jewellery bag - it's available in easily downloadable PDF format - ready to print if you like!

  1. Jill, My DH's grandmother made me a jewelry bag like this years ago. I use it for my things when we travel to keep things tidy and I love it! This is really a great project!

    Thanks so much for coming over and leaving a comment. Yes, people are still caring and kind and generous and......I want to be more like that every day-

    Wishing for some Australia warmth these days in Colorado, USA--oh so cold tonight 0 F tonight-

    bee blessed
