My Own Bag and Jewelry!

Just for fun, here are some photos of bags, accessories, and jewelry storage I’ve made for me:

This is a reversible padded bag with adjustable strap.  I had a blast decorating each side of the bag flap with applique, embroidery, and buttons!!

This is a business card holder I made with three different fabrics.  I’m going to tweak the pattern a bit so that I can make a wider topstitch around the finished product.  And I’m going to fix the elastic so that it fits around the button better.  But meanwhile I will carry this around in my (orange, above 😀 ) bag.

This is an orange tissue holder.  I carry that in my bag, too.  And this is a wool and silk flower brooch.  I love it!  I also made a red one, but I didn’t take a photo.

And last year I went nuts either trading products for or buying jewelry from local jewelers.  As you can see, I love colourful and big jewelry, too.  😀  But it was cluttering my shelf, and I couldn’t see it all easily.  And I didn’t want to hide it away anymore in the jewelry box.  So, I created some jewelry holders.  They aren’t beautiful, but they are functional.  And they do what I want most – show off the jewelry.  I made them from cardboard, a white sheet, glue gun, string, polyester batting, and duct tape.  I will paint the ring holder with white paint, but I keep forgetting to do so.  😀  (Ignore dates stamps on photos – my camera is wonky)
