[Note: I’ve been getting a lot of traffic to this post ever since AllFreeSewing.com linked to it. Just want to let you know that this is a post I did about making this jewelry roll from the book One Yard Wonders. I don’t have the pattern here. You could probably make it up based on my photos, or hit your library or bookstore and get a hold of the book. It has tons of great projects in it. Thanks for stopping by.
You’re looking forward to a weekend getaway in the City (I leave it up to you which city) and need to pack up all your different accessories. Tuck them into the pockets of this fetching and modern looking jewelry roll and you’ll be all set.
I think this is my favorite one yet! I bought this fabric from an online retailer last year (though it is really fabric from Ikea) and was going to make a top out of it. Unfortunately, I cut the main piece I needed upside down (the fabric is directional) and couldn’t use it for the top. No matter, though, because I love how it looks with black and white ribbons, green lining, my black made-by-me tag, and black zippers.
For the ring keeper part of the roll sometimes I use ribbons that you tie, and sometimes something that snaps in place. I’ve tried sewing the snap on ribbon (not so successful) and then on fabric (much better.) I often have a hard time when sewing of thinking of the order of steps (i.e., sew on your tag at the very beginning), but this time I planned ahead. I pressed the strip of fabric, sewed on the snap, then sewed the seam on the strap so that the stitching for the snaps was hidden by the time it was all assembled.
