I began sewing as a child - my mother did tailoring and alterations. In 2004, I began designing, making, and selling purses at arts festivals - I named my business Ms. Elaineous. In 2009, I opened Sew You Can where I taught sewing lessons. I closed my studio in 2012 to focus on designing patterns. You can follow me at http://mselaineousteachessewing.blogspot.com.
And my real name isn't Elaine - she's my alter-ego!

If you want your rocks to roll in style, then you need to get to work sewing this Jewelry Wallet. For those of you who have made the Zippered Cosmetic Bag, this is the perfect next step. The zipper technique is the same, but you'll be making pockets, so it's a bit more challenging. There are two pockets - a small one at the top and a larger one at the bottom!
You'll learn a great technique for turning this right side out - that will make your jewelry wallet look fabulous while hiding the hole that you used to turn it.
I recommend that you check out my tutorial for making an interior zippered pocket - and practice the technique before buying this pattern. So grab some scraps and try the technique - http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/other/how-to-insert-an-exposed-zippered-pocket/3713
If you decide to try the Snap Setter (from Snap Source) and Tube Turner, the is process easier and faster.
The project isn't too complex or time-consuming, so it makes a great gift. One of my friends stitched up sets of cosmetic bags and jewelry wallets for her bridesmaids! What a great idea.
