All good things ...

... come to those who wait! I finally received some copies of the Moda Bake Shop book, Fresh Fabric Treats. And I can at last reveal my contribution, a jewellery wallet.
Like all Bake Shop projects, the challenge was to create something new and unique with one of the Moda precuts. For me, that precut was a honey bun of a muted, olde worlde line called 'Luna Notte' by 3 Sisters. 
The fabrics seemed to me to be calling out for a soft brown grey linen and some pearl button detail.
The wallet unfolds and is able to be hung from a fabric covered hook. My thought was that it would be handy to use while travelling.
There are lots of components on the inside to accommodate your jewellery. From the top, there is a band for holding hair clips and pins or brooches. The tiny rolls untie in the middle for storing all your diamond rings(!). Below that is a zippered compartment, constructed with clear vinyl.
The pink ties are for holding bangles securely. A felt flap, punched with tiny holes is for your earrings.
And at the bottom of the wallet are a series of loops to hold necklaces. The pink elasticised band is for holding pendants securely, and to prevent your necklaces from tangling.

I feel so honoured to have been asked to contribute to this book. The publishers, Stash Books, have done a beautiful job in bringing together a diverse mix of inspiring projects. 
I have three spare copies of 'Fresh Fabric Treats'. As much as I would love to give them away, they are, in part, payment for my contribution to the book. I am selling these copies for AU$21 each. Please email me if you would like to purchase a copy, and I will let you know how much postage will be to your destination.  

My sincere thanks to my lovely friends, online and otherwise, who have encouraged me to pursue my interest in design. I am indebted to you all. Without you, I'd not have had the courage to design anything! Bloom x

  8. What a wonderful idea- so beautifully executed! You have thought to everything! One reason I don't take much jewellery when I travel is because I am worried about storing it and keeping it safe! Well done!

I am going to have to buy the book so that I can have your pattern. It has all the components that I would want.

  29. Hi Bloom,
    I just found a picture of your beautiful jewellery case on Pinterest and had a pleasant surprise when the chain of links led back to you! It's absolutely gorgeous and I'm now hunting down a copy of the book so I can make one for myself. I feel extra lucky because I already have a bundle of the Luna Notte fabrics waiting to be used! Thanks!
