Bling Book jewellery rolls

At the last “make it sew” sewing club I saw a little book on quick Christmas gifts with some great ideas in, so of course I got my own copy of Simply Sewing as soon as I could, just for the free book πŸ™‚

One project I really like is the “bling book” small jewellery roll, so I made a little stack to wrap up and give. They’re not perfect, my sewing is still a bit irregular, but it’s a fun little make.

The little book folds out to reveal 3 clasps for holding necklaces and a pocket to tuck them into, and a pocket at the other end for any other pretty things. There’s a fleece lining to add some padding, next time I’ll spend more money on the fusible fleece and less time poking loose fleece back into the right place…

I added a few little charms and some contrast stitching in places to add a bit of decoration to the inside. Try not to sew through the charms, I’m surprised I didn’t break a needle on one of them!

And then it folds up and closes with a popper. My first time using them and only one went a bit off πŸ™‚

Perfect for a short trip away! I might make a few more if I have time…but another project from the book is waiting to be sewn first!
