This is a traveling Jewelry Case. You place items in each section, then pull up of the strings, and it gathers up into a "ball," This type of case is good for earrings, and small pieces, but for longer necklaces, use a flat roll.

I believe that this is an over night bag

It is a bread warmer. You could put bread or buns inside, tie the strings together & take it with you to parties etc. My Mom used to make them.

This is a handmade cloth bun warmer. Tuck buns in the openings to keep them warm.

It's a biscuit holder. You would put the biscuits in the sections and then wrap them up with the outer edge to keep them biscuits warm. My Mom used to have one.

It's a bun warmer (?) you put a bun/dinner roll in each section of the brown part AND the white part around it to keep the buns warm on the table.
