This easy to sew small jewelry pouch is the ideal gift to sew for your friends, or just perfect for sew-to-sell projects. It only requires fabric and a drawstring or ribbon, so is very affordable to make and doesn’t need fancy hardware or interfacing. Add a special item of jewelry and it makes a lovely handmade and personal gift.
But of course there is no need to give it away! Sew one for yourself and use it to store your jewelry items, or take them with you when you travel.
Inside you’ll find 8 individual pockets for storing small items such as chains, pendants, earrings and brooches. The round base has plenty of room for bangles and chunkier items.
It closes up securely at the top with a double dawstring cinch closure, making sure nothing will fall out. The ideal way to store jewelry at home or for travel without things getting tangled, broken, dirty or lost.

Recommended materials for the Ferndown Jewelry Pouch sewing pattern This pouch can be sewn with any light to medium weight non-stretch fabrics. I recommend quilting weight cottons, but even old cotton bedsheets and pillow cases or old shirts can be cut up and used to sew these easy drawstring bags. More experienced sewers can use fancy fabrics such as silk, satin or crepe de chine. These fabrics can be very floaty and slippery and are not easy to work with if you are a beginner, but can make gorgeous and luxurious bags that are ideal for gift bags or storing special items.
For the drawstrings I suggest a satin ribbon, but a medium weight cording can be used too – sewers choice.
