Jewellery Pouch

After spending a couple of days untangling my fine chain necklaces, I thought I should find a better way to store them.
A multi-pocket jewellery pouch was the perfect answer, and will also be the answer to all my jewellery storage when I get the time to make some more pouches.

You will need:
1/2 yard for large pocket
FQ for small pocket
small amount of stuffing
ribbon or cord

1) My super complicated way of making a perfect circle- a dinner plate.
you will need to cut two at this size.

2) and two at a different/smaller plate or bowl size. (this would look great if the smaller circles were a different fabric but due to cutting my small ones first, and being too small this is how mine ended up.)

3) fold one of the large circles in half so you can find the centre line.

4) measure in from the edges 1.5 inches and stitch 2 button holes.
5) right sides together, pin and sew around the edges, leaving a turning cap in each.

6) top stitch around both to close the turning gap.

7) on the larger one, you will need to sew two more top stitch lines, to create a casing for the drawstring.
Using different points on your foot, or measurement plate you will be able to keep this consistent around the whole circle.

8) fold both circles into quarters so you can find the centre point. line these up and pin the smaller circle into the middle of the large circle (make sure the button holes on the large circle are on the opposite side as the little circle)

9) grab your next sized fancy tool to make a smaller sized circle again, in the middle of your little one, trace around it with a washable fabric pen.

10) stitch most of the way around this line, leaving a little opening to insert a small amount of stuffing, then continue sewing around.
this only needs to be a small amount of stuffing, not firmly stuffed.

11) I do apologies that I did not take a photo of this next step, but I drew 6 different lines at even points around the circle holding the stuffing.
I stitched from this line to the edge of the little circle. creating 6 small pocket.

12) insert ribbon or cord around the casing, using 1 button hole as entry and exit both times.

And you’re DONE!
It's that SIMPLE!
