Hi – it’s Traci, from amazing mae. I am lucky enough to be one of Melissa’s friends. We have known each other for over 10 years ever since we both moved to the same area of Kentucky. She is awesome and I love bouncing ideas off of her, copying her ideas and just sitting in her craft room to absorb all the creative juices. I am glad she asked me to do the Tuesday Tutorial because it got my slow juices flowing again. So, here is my version of the Tuesday Tutorial – the hanging jewelry organizer for your necklaces and bracelets. This is perfect for hanging on the back of the bathroom door, from a hook in your bedroom or from a pretty nail. The loops snap making it easy to get to a necklace/bracelet or to easily add more to the organzier!
1 piece of medium weight fusible interfacing 34″long X 6″wide
1 piece of Warm and Natural batting 34″long X 6″wide
8 pieces of cotton quilter’s fabric 7″long X 4″wide
4 pieces of medium weight fusible interfacing 7″long X 4″wide
1 pack of heavy duty snaps (comes in a kit with tools to install)
1 pack of 7/16″ extra large eyelets (grommets) and 7/16″ extra large eyelet tool
How to make it:
1 – Iron on the fusible interfacing. You need to iron one piece of 34″ X 6″ interfacing to the wrong side of one of the pieces of 34″ X 6″ of cute cotton quilter’s fabric.
Then, you will need to take the 4 pieces of 7″ X 4″ interfacing and iron them on to the wrong side of just 4 of the 7″ X 4″ pieces of cotton quilter’s fabric. You will have 4 pieces left that do not have interfacing fused to them.
“> 7 – Attaching the loops to the long quilted piece of fabric with the other part of the snap. You will place these bottom snaps at 4″ from top, 12″, 20″, and 28″ (all 8 inches apart). You will snip the little hole in the base fabric first and put the back part of the snap through. Then, cut a tiny hole in the opposite side of the loop (opposite from the end that you already attached the first part of the snap). Lay this on top of the base fabric and make sure the snap goes through it as well.
12 – Now, it is done, but you can add a ribbon if you want to hang it from something that is larger than the opening of the grommet. I cut a piece of ribbon 30″ long, ran it through the grommet, and tied a knot at the top. Hang your necklaces and bracelets from all the loops and hang it on the back of the bathroom door, from a hook in your room or a pretty nail in the wall.
*This would be very cute in a teens room or in your daughter’s room to hang all her jewelry and head bands!!
