After a fun day of sewing here at the shop we have another project to share with you! True to the spirit of our new Zambezi fabric line, this one will ignite your wanderlust for far off exotic places.
Truth be told, Sew Charleston inspired this project; after seeing her beautiful Bengal Jewelry Roll, we've been dying to try out this pattern from Patty Young of Modkid! Not only does it offer a fun way to coordinate different fabrics, it also keeps your jewelry organized and tangle free for traveling.
This handy accessory features a generous pocket with a zipper closure, large enough to stash a variety of items from jewelry to make up, sunscreen, and more. The tabs with button closures are great for necklaces, bracelets, and even rings! I'm guilty of losing more than a few of those so I'm excited to have a way to keep them in their place while traveling.
Of course, you can also customize your own jewelry roll to accommodate the things you carry. You could easily forgo the stitching here and leave the pockets above open, or even add another zippered pocket.
The fabrics are an assortment of the Golden Canyon and Onyx color stories from Zambezi. I love how the tribal inspired motifs play off the wild animals. The long vertical piece for the outside of the roll provided a great way to show off the beautiful Watering Hole fabric, with the wildebeest, acacia tree and ostrich duets centered on the roll.
Here she is, all rolled up and ready to go; now I just need that vacation! We hope you'll try this fun project, and share your designs in the comments below. And stay tuned for more inspiration for getting in touch with your wild side!
