Here is another project I have been pining to sew: the jewelry pouch.
It all began with this fabulous pattern with instructions I found here. Good thorough instructions are given there but I will highlight a few things here.
Two circles of two sizes are cut and sewn with 1/4 inch seam. But before sewing the seams together, a buttonhole is made on the outer larger piece of fabric. I kept forgetting that so I had to rip seams a few times! The buttonhole is sewn on the outer side only. I think I will make two buttonholes next time so I can insert two drawstrings to make it close easier.
This is the completed inside. You can see the triangular pouches that will hold the jewelry.
Here is the outside piece with the buttonhole.
A casing is sewn for my ribbon drawstring.
It was made out of remnants from my bedroom window treatment. Whenever I have anything sewn for the house, or upholstered, I always ask for the fabric scraps. I have a big pile of them I can play with now that I have a sewing machine once again.
