I needed a quick present for a friend and i wanted something personal. since shes traveling a lot i thought of a bag to store her jewelry in.
I had all the supplies at home (where else to get them on sunday night?)

Yeah, you see its talking to me!(due to cliche i call it Sean)

the fabric changes color from green, to a lilacky blue, the shamrocks are light green

in reality the stitched letters (her monograms) are violet like the straps and most of the lining and contrast the fabric (i love green and violet)

The pictures are not that good (thanks to the lightning) and make it look bulgy, but i swear it isnt!  Cheesy

in the middle left there's a strap to attach rings and the white fabric next to it is mesh, so she can pin earrings or pins into it, the rest is normal pockets closed with zippers or velcro.

and one pic rolled and strapped together

I made it up as i went along remembering something similar i had seen in a shop. I hope she likes it.
