My little girl has a jewel obsession.  Her dad says he feels sorry for her future husband.  Luckily, these days she thinks plastic jewels are just as good as the real thing, and so my hubby and I are not in the dog house.  The thing is, it isn’t just jewels that she adores (although they are the most popular).  She loves anything small, Shopkins, legos, marbles.  Her fine motor skills are getting quite good (and I am very excited to begin the crochet lessons soon;), and other than stepping on the toys or the occasional vacuuming up of them, we are happy to indulge this passion.

Which brings me to this weeks project.  Treasure satchel #2.  I recently made a treasure satchel for my daughter’s friend.  I had posted the tutorial for this a few months ago.  My daughter eyed my work jealously because, of course, she wanted to keep it!  So, I decided to give it another go and make my jewelry loving little one something new.
