I’ve started talking about “why have a blog site” a bit on the “ABOUT” page.

So, I’m just gonna get right to reporting recent projects.  Over the years, I’ve made a ton of these drawstring jewelry bags.  People usually like them.  I’ve given away or sold all I’ve ever made, I don’t know why I don’t make one for myself!  But the last two people that I’ve given them too, have sorta looked at them and said, “is it a granny bonnet?” 🙂

These are easy and fun to make, circles of fabric sewn together.  The smallest is sewn to the largest so that it sorta looks like a “pie” .  I then sew a circle in around where all the pieces intersect and it forms 8 pockets inside the jewelry bag.  I use an eyelet stitch to make “holes” for the drawstring casing.
