Bag It - Jewelry Roll

jewelry travel bag tutorialWelcome to day 10 of the Elm Street Quilts Bag It series.   It has been so very exciting to see all the photos of bags posted and fun to share this series with everyone!

For more information about the series, including sponsors and giveaways, visit the main Bag It page.

If you've been following along through the series, you might remember the post where I used fabric strip scraps from my AMB fabrics and created new fabric for a bag?  (The post was called Make your own fabric.)

I used that fabric to make the outside (back) of a Jewelry Roll.

Inside, I've got 3 nice big pockets which have been further divided.  Hard to see in the photo but the top and bottom pocket have been divided in half and the middle one into thirds.

Before your next trip, zip your bracelets, necklaces and rings away safely and then roll up the jewelry travel roll and tie.  It will tuck into your suitcase quite easily and all your jewelry will stay in one place and will not get tangled!!

These make wonderful gifts.  I first designed these several years ago and gave them to each of my sisters for Christmas.  For those, I choose this pretty print that was left over fabric from a quilt back.  (I've still got some of this left and now it is being used in my Farmer's Wife quilt!)

You can see the pockets a bit more clearly in this photo.  See how all the jewelry tucks in quite nicely?  I still get thanks from my sisters about these - they use them all the time.

And look how nice my new jewelry roll matches two of the other bags I made for this series.  (This post and that post for more information.)  Looks like I am ready to travel ... just need somewhere to go!!

The pattern for this jewelry travel roll can be found in my Craftsy store. It is one of my most popular patterns.
