I have a store-bought travel jewelry organizer like this, and decided to make one for a friend for Christmas.  I thought I was being clever and making it easier by using velcro instead of zippers... wrong!  The velcro was very hard to sew through with the thick quilted fabric I chose to use.  I recommend you use zippers instead!

The edging is grosgrain ribbon, with a gold satiny ribbon for pull tabs and the tie.

This is the inside. Note the long roll, for sliding rings onto, which buttons at the end.  Also the multiple small pockets are great for earrings or bracelets, necklaces, etc.  This is useful for keeping a few sets of jewelry from tangling or getting lost when you travel...



...and this is the outside.  You tri-fold the thing closed, wrap the ribbon around, and tie in a bow. Simple but effective:

Having been a road warrior for many years, I can appreciate this handy, helpful, and very useful work of art!  I've struggled for years with how to transport jewelry while traveling, and avoid losing earrings or crimped necklaces from packed luggage being thrown about at airports!  Your friend will love this!
Thanks for sharing.... you've provided me with inspiration!
