So how do you store your jewelery when your packing for vacation ..... if you're me, it's in Ziplock bags!!! I know ..... very classy, right!!!!
Well, not anymore ... I picked up a copy of Stitch magazine - the gift guide edition. Oh boy, does it have a lot of fun ideas in it. I think I dog eared every second page in the magazine.

I found the instructions to make this jewelery holder .... isn't it lovely?
I love the fact that you can use a number of coordinating fabrics. The directions were very clear and easy to follow ... this was a really" fun to make" project. The 4 pockets are quite roomy, which means you can take jewelery to match every outfit ...... show me a girl who wouldn't love that.

Then looking at it again today .... I do that quite often when I'm particulary happy with a project ... the thought came to me - it would work just as well as a notions travel roll. There is ample space to hold crochet hooks, scissors, a needlebook, embroidery floss, buttons .... and so the list goes on. It would make the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list, who likes to crochet, embroider, knit etc on the go. You could even pop some crafting goodies into the pockets if you wished.

So there you have it, another gift idea perhaps?


  1. This is great! Like you you my typical jewelry tote is a little cardboard box or a ziplock bag.
