Anti tarnish jewelry pouch party

My light box is too small for pics like this one. I need a new one! I guess I have to ask Mr German Engineer :)
well I made some new jewelry pouches, these fabrics are so lovely. I am so glad that I can save them and turn them into something that can keep more pretties :) The fabric I use for these bags (99% ) comes as scrap pieces of tradition japanese outfits like kimono, haori, etc. Usually these outfits are stained so people cant wear them anymore so people take them apart and sell them. Basically we recycle the fabric to make these pouches. It would have been a shame if they wound up in trash, right?
The ones I use are mostly silk, chirimen (mostly rayon), sometimes cotton. They are all beautiful.
