More Handmade Gifts

Another type of gift I had fun making were these travel jewelry cases out of potholders and snack size ziplock baggies. I followed this tutorial with the addition of adding pretty fabric to the outside of the cases with iron-on fabric adhesive. I included a little pair of earrings made by me in each travel case.

I also used the iron-on adhesive to monogram knitting bags for a few of my friends who are learning to knit. This one was for my friend Katy.

And the rolled up thing is a knitting needle case that I made with matching fabric. Cute, no?
The base for this was a place mat from the dollar store. I used bamboo skewers to make long skinny pockets for the needles.
