The next day I decided to make an earring holder. I'd seen them before somewhere, a flea market or craft show display perhaps - they were simply screens in a frame, perfect for keeping dangly earrings organized and easily accessible. I had a big wooden frame left over from the embroidery piece I turned into this doll. I didn't have a screen but I have a ton of fabric so I chose a vintage print with a loose weave that I could poke earrings through.
I ironed on some thin fusible Pellon to make it a little more sturdy.
Then I stapled it to the frame around the inside edges.
and trimmed the fabric and added a hanging wire.
And now, in seconds flat, I can grab my earrings and I'm out the door.
