Don't you hate traveling and not having a perfect place to store a little makeup or some jewelry?
Here's how to make and solve that problem...
Cut out two big circles of fabric and lay them on top of each other facing pattern-front to pattern-front.
Now, sew two outer edge lines around the fabric leaving enough space in between the two so that you can later shimmy a ribbon or string in there!
BUT WAIT!!! You NEED to leave two 2" gaps at either end of the circle....like so...(I'm not a seamstress...so just get the idea and do better okay?)
Now flip it right side in, and put a safety pin on the end of your ribbon or string or shoe lace (whatever will tie it together) And start push-threading it. Start at one 2" gap you left open and then make it around to the other gap you left open and...
Once you thread it around to the opposite gap, pull a big loop out, and then continue threading in the same direction all the way around the circle till you make it back to the one where you started...
Place big beads on the ends of the strings and add knots so that the beads don't come off!
Here's the FIRST SIDE!:
Did I tell you they're reversible?
Here's the 2nd side:
(The best way to tie it closed is to...pull the beads up towards the end of the string where your knots should be...tie one knot -like how you start a shoe tie- and then push the beads down to hold it there. It will stay closed for your whole trip!)
