How do you pack your jewelry for travel? I have been using ziploc bags. Easy to find, but not cool. And definitely not fun. (And I pack too much because I can always grab another baggie!) To help me organize my baubles and keep them from tangling as they bounce around in bags, I needed a travel case that I could roll up for compact packing and keep flat in a drawer or hang in the closet at my destination. So I designed this jewelry roll-up travel case and made it with Kraft-tex, a sturdy, stitchable paper fabric that behaves like leather.
The finished case measures 8 1/2 X 14 inches when open, the size of a legal-size sheet of paper. So you can easily play with auditioning pocket placement and size before sewing if you need a different configuration. It would be easy to adapt this pattern to other sizes and customize it just for you!
Although I made this jewelry roll-up travel case with Kraft-Tex, you can use any sturdy fabric, or quilt some fabrics for the outside layer. The advantage of Kraft-Tex is that it is durable, washable and firm – but if you layered quilting fabrics with batting and did a simple quilt design, that would work as well!
