From Wallet to Travel Jewellery Case

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!


  1. Very, very clever! And leather! Gosh, your jewelry is travelling in style!!

  2. Thanks, Sue, It looks really pretty, I must say:)

  3. This is such a clever idea! I came over from your link up at A Glimpse Inside. You have a new follower! I can't wait to discover the rest of your blog.


  4. great idea!! :)

  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!

  6. actually think it would make a great knitting needle case!
