A holder for jewels?

 I've been spending more hours than I care to admit monkeying round with creating a pattern/tutorial for making this jewelry holder.....


It's hard to see in the photo below but there are three pocket sections, one zippered and the other two covered with flaps.  There's a removable earring holder as well.  


This one will be gifted at Christmas to the same friend who will be receiving the brush roll holder for her birthday next month.  If I manage to get the pattern written clearly enough I will post it here for anyone who also might like to make them.  I plan to include a piece of costume jewelry with these.  

- I imagine there will be a bunch of THESE designs popping up but this is the first I've come across.  I think, if I were doing it, I wouldn't be putting a used mask into it for risk of contamination of the clean ones, but otherwise the design idea is a good one.  I would be tempted to put a bottle of hand sanitizer in the extra pocket.

- You might enjoy a browse through the galleries of THIS artist.

- Those of you who enjoy playing with paint and paper might find THIS of interest.

- And HERE is another artist whose work you might enjoy seeing.

- THIS is a super thread/colour tool that might be invaluable!

Today's quote..."If you find something that makes you giggle, smile or laugh....buy it or marry it!"

    1. She's usually a fan of what I do, so hopefully this will be a winner. I plan to include a fun necklace with it as well.

  4. Hi Mary Anne,
    A lovely gift for your lucky friend! The earring holder sounds interesting! Is that an additional pouch?
    The pouch for masks sounds interesting! Might try that! Hubby wanted something to put his mask in when he isn’t using it.
    Hugs,
    Barbara xx

    1. Thanks Barbara - glad you like it. The earring holder part of it is just a strip of plastic canvas that's removable so it's easy to attach the earrings.

    1. You're welcome Carol - I thought that color match site was something a lot of us would find useful.

  6. Love your design! Very nice.
    As for the mask pocket on the link, I'm not feeling for it. A dirty mask shouldn't be anywhere near clean ones. Dirty face napkins don't go back on one's purse thing.
    I use a disinfected washed out well Altoids tin to keep an extra mask with me. The metal is much easier to clean than fabric.

    1. I agree - I wouldn't want to put a used mask in with clean ones, but I suggested that perhaps carrying a small bottle of hand sanitizer in the extra pocket might be the way to go. Altoid tins are a great alternative too!
