Ring Storage-Make it before Buy it-Sweater Surgery Style

My personal manifesto:
When I need something, I think first, can I make it instead of just going out and buying it?

Here is an example.

I have been acquiring quite a few rings lately and they are not stored in an organized way. My first thought is- go out and buy a ring storage box. But then I stop myself and say, "can I make it?" and yes I can!

I look around all my saved treasures, the things I fall in love with and keep with the thought, "I can use that for something." Well that day has come baby!

I have tons of cigar boxes, both cardboard and wood. I can't help myself I am nuts for boxes.
And I have tons of wool felted sweaters, but you already know that!

So here is what I did:

    I went to the stashes and pulled out one pretty blue and gold cigar box and a coordinating blue wool felted sweater. This one was pretty thick so it worked well. I think if you were using a thinner sweater you could fuse two layers together to thicken them.

I swear I saw a version of this that had to do with a high heel shoe.. low and behold I cannot find it anywhere so I will have to try and make myself one! When I do I will have to post it! I need something to store my rings even if I end up doing just a box...

Thank you for this idea! I was looking for a way to organize my rings, and I didn't think about using fabric. I did the "lazy version "of this (I just folded the fabric and didn't stick it), and it's just what I need.
