JEWELRY POUCH TUTORIAL

A few weeks ago I made these jewelry pouches for my quilting friends in the Loose Threads group.  I promised a tutorial on how to make them.  So, here it is.  I tried to take a few pictures as I went but kept forgetting to, especially close to the end.  Sorry!

Supplies needed:

1/2 yard of fabric #1 (or 2 fat quarters coordinating)
1/3 yard of fabric #2 coordinating with fabric #1 (or 1 fat quarter)
2 1/2 yards small cording
1 - 3" circle from sturdy posterboard or plastic sheeting (I use lids from butter tubs or cool whip tubs)

Cutting Instructions:

1.  Cut 2 18" circles from fabric #1
2.  Cut 2 11" circles from fabric #2

Sewing Instructions:
  • Cut an "X" in the center of the "inside" 18" circle. The "X" should be no more than about 3" in diameter (to be used later for turning the circle inside out).  

  • Make 2 button holes 1 1/2" away from the outer edge opposite each other on the "outer" 18" circle. (In this picture if you look real close, you can see my two straight pins opposite each other).

I also ironed on a small square of iron on interfacing to give the button holes some stability.  Guess that comes from by garmet making days in 4-H.

  • Sew the 2 - 18" circles right sides together on the outer edge using a scant 1/4" seam allowance. 
  • Turn the large circle right sides out and press.  Topstitch on the outer edge if desired.
  • Sew a stitching line 1 1/4" from the outer edge.
  • Sew a second stitching line 1/2" away from the first stitching line. This will make the casing for the cording.
  • Fold the circle in half and press, fold in half again and press, fold one more time and press.  This divides the circle into eights.
  • Set aside.
  • Cut an "X" in the center of the inside 11" circle.  The "X" should be no more than about 3" in diameter (to be used later for turning the circle inside out).
  • Sew the 2 - 11" circles right sides together on the outer edge using a scant 1/4" seam allowance.
  • Turn the small circle right sides out and press.  Topstitch on the outer edge if desired.
  • Fold the circle in half and press, fold in half again and press, fold one more time and press.  This divides the circle into eights.
  • Cut a 3" circle from a sturdy posterboard or plastic sheeting.
  • Insert into the small circle, centering in the middle and pin on the outside to hold in place until stitched.  (I used a chalk pencil and drew around the circle so I would know where it was and not stitch on top of it later.)

  • Center the small circle on the large circle matching the fold lines and making sure the "X slit" is hidden in the sandwich of the circles.
  • Sew around the plastic 3" circle first, then sew from the outer edge of the 3" stitching line to the outer edge of the small circle along the fold lines, creating a "bottom" and 8 sections.

  • Cut the 2 1/2 yard piece of cording in half to make 2 pieces. 
  • Using a bodkin or large safety pin, insert one piece of cording in the buttonhole/casing and tie ends of cording together. 
  • Now insert the second piece of cording into the opposite buttonhole/casing and tie ends of cording together, creating the drawstring.
  • TA DAH!! IT'S DONE!
