Several weeks ago I attended a jewelry event here in Atlanta and learned how to make my own jewelry sack.  I thought I would share it with you so you can do it at home!


What you will need:

1 Fabric piece for outside of the bag – cut into a circle 6″-8″ in diameter

1 Fabric piece for inside of bag – cut into a circle 6″-8″ in diameter

1 Ribbon


Peel n’ Stick fabric tape

How to create:

1 – Choose one piece of fabric to put tape on.  Turn the fabric over to the non-patterned side or “wrong” side and place a piece of Peel n’ Stick fabric tape as close to the outer edge of the fabric as possible.  Continue placing the tape along the outer edge using 8-12 pieces of tape all the way around.

2 – After placing the tape down, you’ll pick up you second piece of fabric and tape it to the first.  Make certain to tape the non-patterned or “wrong” sides facing each other so only side of the fabric you would like showing is exposed.

3 – Using scissors, cut any excess fabric from the top of your fabric circle.  With the scissors, make 8-12 evenly spaced slits around the edge of the fabric, leaving about 1/4″ from the edge. (Suggestion: fold the circle in half like a taco and cut a small slit on each end of the folded edge.  Open your circle and fold it in half in the opposite direction; cut 2 more slits on the folded edges.  Repeat this step until you have enough evenly spaced holes.)

4 – Take your piece of ribbon and lace the ribbon through each hole, starting from the outside.  After holes have been laced, pull and tie your drawstring.

Final Bag!

Have fun!
