I made this bag for Sadie’s Kindergarten teacher this Christmas-she loves jewelry so I hoped this travel jewelry bag would be a useful gift for her! I kind of want one for myself now, too. So handy! I used this tutorial/free pattern. I love all the small pockets for earrings and rings. So awesome. It was a very simple sew-took about an hour 1/2 give or take a few minutes…it’s a great gift idea to have in your back pocket.

I used some of my own fabric I designed for the lining! It’s over on Spoonflower if you’d like to purchase it! I love the happy colors and the hexies! swoon.

hexie fabric designed by craftiness is not optional-available on spoonflower!

For the outside I used some Yarn-Dyed Essex Linen Black from my sponsor Fabricworm. It has such a lovely texture and color variance. It pairs with anything, literally.

It all bundles up into a neat little package, perfect for throwing into your overnight bag.

  1. Hi Jess!
    I was looking at the same pattern some days ago… Do you think it could be useful to store sewing machine needles? I would pin them in each pocket, without their boxes… but I’m not sure about measures… What do you think?
    Happy New Year!

  2. What a cute little jewelry bag. I know how to sew a teeny tiny bit. This looks easy enough for me to make. Nice for a small gift for someone.

  3. That’s a really good idea and I could use one for myself. Is the jewelry secure if it’s upside down? I feel like earrings may fall out if it rolls around in my luggage. Does it seem secure?

    • it closes up pretty tight-I feel like it would be secure! Especially if you wedge it in somewhere tightly. 🙂

      • I have one and have used it for years and have never lost anything out of mine. If it managed to open up yes they would fall out but it is unlikely.

  4. This jewelry bag looks great. I love the fabrics you used for it! I guess this project can be used to use up some scraps. Another item to add to my to-sew-list 😉

  5. This is lovely! A perfect teacher’s gift (though probably not for my son’s male teacher this year :)!

  6. i love it! Really cute. And I just made my first ever spoonflower purchase because of you – one yard of these hexie dots, headed my way!!! So exciting.

  7. Cute bag… especially those tiny scattered hexagons! Love it. =)

  8. That is so cute! When travelling, my poor jewelry always ends up at the bottom of my make-up bag or something, I’m so making one of these for myself:)!
