For Sewing on the Road
I've been wanting to make a little sewing kit to hold all those little supplies to make it a lot easier to take projects along with me. I nabbed these Kaffe Fassett fabrics at the AQS show a couple weeks ago with this project in mind. It was a difficult task finding the right button. My selection is a bit limited and green one was the perfect color, bit it just was not big enough. So I stacked it on top of a bigger one. Then I realized that I would have to stitch it on INSIDE the little pocket...
A little tricky. I used Rae's pleated pocket tutorial. The left side features a bit of ceiling fan chain to use to thread a spool of thread or bobbin onto.
And everything gets snapped in with a couple flaps of felt and some sew-on snaps. I wouldnt play hacky-sack with it, but I don't think anything is going to fall out with the normal tossing about. Unfolded it measures 5.5 by 12 inches.
