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
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.
