    I have one already (store bought) and it is really useful for traveling. This is so pretty though, I am tempted to make a new one.

    This is great, but I see no need for petersham ribbon since the trim is mitered instead of rounded. Grosgrain costs much less, comes in many colors and patterns, and does the job perfectly. Thanks for this great jewelry roll pattern.
