Jewelry Bag

I'm getting ready to go to Henderson, Nevada to visit my Mom for a few days, but actually got a couple of posts done ahead if you can believe that.  This one is a little bag for my 52 weeks of projects, and is an easy little clutch purse, or bag for jewelry or make-up. It was a really quick project, and I thought I might make a couple more for travel... might put some cotton batting in the next one to give it a little cush.

1. Cut two pieces of satin or silk type material (on the fold at the bottom) into a rectangular size of your
 choice.  Cut the corners of the top edges to make an envelope shape.  

2. With right sides together, sew the 2 pieces together, leaving a 2 inch opening at on one side.

3. Turn right sides out, and iron with (silk setting).

4.  Fold bottom half of purse to desired height.  Decide where to put button and button hole.  Add button hole.

5.   Pin together and then top stitch together (including top flap.

6.  Add button.

 All done.


  1. Do I start all your project posts with, 'this is so lovely'?!

    It is. And it's not something that takes ages to make either.

    Another one for my Christmas list!

  2. That is such a nice little bag. I love seeing all of your projects. I hope you are doing well. Your post on strength also brought me much needed encouragement! I thank God for the light you are to young ladies like me and everyone else. Love you Miss Pam.


  3. That's lovely fabric for your bag. Have a good trip.

  4. Miss Pam~

    What a cute little project!!! Reminds me of the way women used to pack their luggage, a place for everything and everything in it's place.
    I LOVE the way you made a walk through with the pics and descriptions. Even I could make it with your directions. :-D
    Love you!

  5. This is really sweet.
    Do you Make aprons? I want to make some soon.

  6. Hi Pam, thank you so much for much for the little bag; I am glad that I came back and read this post b/c I didn't know that you made it! I love how the colors matched the necklace and the pearl button really makes it feel elegant and special!

    Also, I just finished reading Elon the story about Shorty. We both thoroughly enjoyed it :) Little Shorty is all grown up-- already wearing lipstick! Can't wait for the next entry.
