The "It's a Cinch!" Double-Drawstring Jewelry Pouch is a nifty little pouch made not only to contain heirlooms, but to become an heirloom itself. They make the perfect gift for any girl, young our old. They are excellent for keeping a few dainty pieces tucked away. Toss them in a suitcase when traveling and hang them on a doorknob by their drawstrings. "It's a Cinch!" Double-Drawstring Jewelry Pouches are space-savers for the young lady in the college dorm room, and they make excellent wedding favors. Even keep baby's jewelry, locks of hair, and Tooth Fairy's teeth in them!
Super-easy to make, the pouch is basically constructed of 4 fabric circles. When assembled, sewn stitches create 8 pockets around the interior circumference and one center spacious area to safely contain jewelry and other keepsakes. Having two drawstrings securely holds the pouch closed, and when opened, only widens to the perfect width, preventing spills. To make The "It's a Cinch!" Double-Drawstring Jewelry Pouch, you will need to have only a basic knowledge of sewing. It doesn't matter if you do not have a fancy sewing machine. All your machine needs to do is to be able to sew a straight stitch and make a button hole.

If you are new to sewing the pattern and directions are confusing. If you are adept and just need a jumping off point, you'll probably be fine.
I found this helpful as a STARTING point for a good cinching jewelry bag, but I had to make several modifications before I felt it was useful and professional. The biggest hiccup I found was that the 2 smaller circles (the inner circle and the stitching guide) were too small. Once I adjusted their size I was much more happy with the finished product.
A little confusing on first read over once I re-read it, it was a good pattern and made cute little bags.
Kinda confusing, but overall a good pattern
