I can’t help drooling over pictures of gorgeous walk-in closets with romantic and glamorous touches. We gave up our walk-in closet when we created a fourth bedroom upstairs. I don’t regret this extra room, which was first a nursery and … Continue reading
This travel roll for jewelry is a quick and easy project, proven by the fact I made it the night before we left for family vacation!
My jewelry roll is perfect for packing necklaces and bracelets, which is what I usually wear.
To make your own, you’ll need
- 10″x23″ quilted fabric
- 14″x27″ coordinating fabric for the outside
- 3/8″ wide grosgrain ribbon, about 42″ total
- 1″ wide grosgrain ribbon, about 1 yard
- Thread and sewing machine
I cut the narrow grosgrain into four-inch sections to make the loops.
Next, I lay the small quilted material on the wrong side of the outer material. I folded over a border on all sides, and tucked the loops under the hem, pinning them in place.
I stitched down the border, which also secured the loops.
To make the outside tie, I folded the wide grosgrain in half and sewed it to one end of the roll, on the outside.
And that’s it!
Easy and pretty!
Sometimes, every day feels like rush, rush, rush… get up, get ready, take the kids to school, work, back home, more kids and more work… I am very fortunate to love it all as much as I do, but the pace can definitely get to be a bit much!
Every once in a while, I have to remind myself to take a “time out.” All the work of home and job is never truly finished, and it’s okay to give yourself a few hours – or even minutes – to do something for yourself.
Tonight’s time out was sooooo easy and exciting.
I have been eyeing beautiful closet designs on Pinterest, planning out my own little spot of blingy bliss. One thing I knew I wanted to include was a way to display some jewelry. I ended up making this beautiful and super-easy magnetic display board that was ready in minutes!
The simple materials for this board were:
- framed magnet board
- Imperial Trellis wallpaper left over from the powder room and the living room bookshelves
- clear magnetic “push pins”
- Command Adhesive Picture-Hanging Strips to mount the board on the wall
The rest of my closet nook is still coming together and will require a bit more elbow grease than this easy project, but I hope I can show it to you soon!
“Jewels” (no pun intended!!)
