Next Saturday is a friend’s birthday. She’s turning 30, and I wanted to do something a little extra special for her this year. She’s the sort of girl who loves her blue jeans and pretty jewellery, adores the colour pink, and loves bunny rabbits and butterflies. So, I thought it would be great to do something a little different with my sewing machine this week and make her something unique.
I decided a jewellery roll would be the perfect thing for her. She has so many nice things, and traveling with them can be a real nuisance. So, I went down to the local fabric store and bought a good sturdy denim and some soft pink satin. After some thought, I decided it should be able to hold at least four necklaces, some rings, earrings, and have a couple pockets for larger things, such as bracelets. The two pockets fold down, as does the earring part (the round section). Then the rest folds over to make it all snug and secure.
So, it’s all still a work in progress but I wanted to share what I have so far. The embroidery takes the most time, but can be incredibly worth it.
The lighting today doesn’t do these colours justice- the denim is a dark blue, and the pink is bright and cheerful. Soon there will be butterflies in purple and pink tones to frolic with the bunny. I’m looking forward to watching her unwrap the finished product.
