jewelry pouch

Hello! It’s Amanda from Jedi Craft Girl here!  Today I’m sharing a fun gift idea that would be perfect for a mom, friend, or sister.  It’s a zipper pouch and inside are smaller pouches designed to hold jewelry.  I always hate dumping all my jewelry into a bag when I travel so I started using the shoe mits you get free at hotels to separate my jewelry.  I decided to update my jewelry travel system to something more fun.  My mom, my sister and I LOVE Twisted Silver jewelry!!  It tends to be chunky and these pouches are just perfect!

Using a bowl or a small plate, draw a rounded edge on one of the ends of the fused pieces.  Pin both pieces right sides together.jewelry zipper pouch 30Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew all the way around this piece, making sure to sew on the curved line.  Leave a 3″ opening on one of the long sides of this piece.  Trim off the excess and clip the corners, and clip along the curved edge.  Turn right side out.
