I went crazy at Fabricville (aka Fabricland in Ontario) the other day and bought a bunch of stuff. They were having a 50% off EVERYTHING sale. So I just wanted to test out making stuff with zippers because I've never used them before. Here's a little pouch with a canvas top, suede block on the bottom and a fancy lining. I'm planning on screen printing a bunch of the canvas and making more. It was super fun! Enjoy!

Here's a DIY jewelry maker! I made this from random things I found at home, you can go to the store to buy the items to make this and it should cost less than $20.
List of things I used to make it:-Wooden frame (mine was a bottom of a shelf)
-White spray paint and a clear spray coat
-Aluminum foil duct tape (really sticky tape!)
-Mesh, wire or fabric with larger holes
-White piece of fabric
-Nails and screws
-Cup hooks (hooks with rubber over it)
So this is how the frame started out looking, it use to be a bottom piece of a shelf so the top and bottom just look like unfinished wood because you wouldn't be able to see it on the shelf. I covered it with two coats of spray paint and one coat of gloss clear spray.
Then I traced the frame onto a piece of cardboard and cut out the backing with a utility knife, or scissors...I don't remember.
Took the screws and screwed on those frame hooks! One on each side. Then hammered the cardboard backing into the wooden frame.
I bought seven cup hooks, two were larger to fit chunkier necklaces which I put on the outer sides. Then I measured out the seven hooks and drilled holes into the frame.
It's DONE! Now I piled all my stuff onto it!! Good times. Enjoy!
