All zipped Up


I never travel light and that includes jewellery, and I always like to take a few special pieces with me when we go on holiday. I had a rather lurid plastic wallet as my jewellery storage for holidays, so I decided to make a quilted one using the left over patchwork from the bag I blogged a while ago. The photographs for some reason seem to have difficulty with the colours. The second photo is the truer colour match.



It has six different pockets to house my jewellery, so plenty of room for my favourite bits and bobs.   Two of which are below. I'm a silver girl and have never really liked gold! The only gold I own are my rings, but I do have quite a few. The silver and amethyst necklace is the first necklace my husband bought me when I was eighteen from The Great Frog in Carnaby Street London and is still my favourite piece. It's very scary to think how long ago that was!!! He recently made me a set of 5 single bangles which I wear most days and are another favourite.



Hope you are all having a good week, I've been doing quite a bit of sewing so the next few projects will be of the fabric kind I'm afraid.

Thank you for all your lovely comments and Have a great crafty day. xx

Oh wow, not only a stunning bag but a totally fab idea!! I may have to order one of these from you! Oh and I can't wait to see what you will do when the new Tim Holtz fabrics hit the market here in the UK!

Brenda Brown said...

Oh so practical Paula but more than that a wonderful piece of clever designing and making. Are you going to get some of Tim's fabrics to work with?

Dorthe said...

Oh it is a wonderful jewel bag, dear Paula,- so lovely fabrics and a great idea- now they can travel with you, without being scratched !!
I read Astrids comment, too- and so hope one of you will tell me where the Tim Holz fabrics will be sold in UK!! I don`t think they will be in Denmark--so I will love to buy from UK!
Hugs from Dorthe

Hi Paula, I always love looking at your projects especially the fabric ones. This is just gorgeous and such a brilliant idea, you give me such inspiration. I have been doing a pit of patchwork recently (I have one on my blog tomorrow). It was a bit of a fiddly one but turned out ok in the end (I think) lol. Julia xxxxx
