From Wallet to Travel Jewellery Case


Hi!
In one of my many trips to the thrift store I found this shinny and  perfect leather wallet. I did not necessarily needed it but, hey, for 99 cents I thought, hummmm,  I can buy it it now and figure out later what to do with it. No worries, no guilt.



( time elapsed...let's say,  2 months.....) 
Not many supplies needed here:
Small lunch plastic bags. Took them to the sewing machine and sewed them together
Attaching the bags to  the wallet : I did not to wanted to ruin my machine or needle, so I used hot hot glue. So far, so good.
Can you figure out what  is gonna come out of it?
 A perfect, small, cute, shinny, cheap travel jewellery case!!

 I love how compact it is!

 Another dollar well spent ..wink wink!

  5. What a great idea! So much better than jewelry in loose bags. I even have a wallet similar to that. Hmmm, thinkin' I might have to make one of those before my next trip. Thank you!
