What every girl needs!

Thank you for all of your lovely comments and “likes” on this post. You have all encouraged me to open up the shutters of my Esty shop and dust down the shelves 🙂

Another handmade sewing case and pattern with photo-tutorial will soon be available.

    • Aw! Thank you Claire. It really was just throwing a few scraps together 😉 Notice how I put cross-stitch goodies inside?

        does this mean you’re going to pick up some cross stitch projects?

        • Yes, I’ve done quite a few types of needlework in the past and I must say you’ve inspired me to go back to it. I’m going to send you a picture of a past project soon 🙂

    I would love for you to make a tutorial for this!! I have been looking and looking for a travel case for my embroidery and this one is perfect!! So, please DO make a tutorial!! 🙂

  9. Thank you my friend! Looks beautiful and just what I need! I thought I would need something to keep my tools when travelling but didn’t know how to make it. Your idea is great and it starts like a mini quilt! We can use also some blocks that are waiting … I think I have just what it needs! Happy sewing! x Teje

    • Brilliant! I know you’ll have it made ready for your travels. Now, I wonder, will it have any orange in it??… 😉

      • …. I wonder how your guessed? Yesterday I looked my ‘forgotten’ blocks and there is one from the sewing machine cover … hexagon with orange and green! x Teje

  14. Lovely!

    With the amount of sewing I’ve been doing lately, I’ve really been contemplating making something like this for myself. It could really come in handy!

  15. This is adorable! I want to make one for myself!! Thanks for the tutorial. 😉

  16. I think the photos are just great! Greyness doesn’t show up and the details do show up excellently. What a pretty sewing case too. Lovely fresh colours. If it’s not raining or blowing a gale a good tip is to photograph outside on a grey day, one to maximise the available light which gives truer colours and two, because there are no strong shadows to contend with. Probably preaching to the converted but it’s a tip I learned off my dad years ago and has stood me in good stead.

  17. No! I definitely need lessons in the photography department. I live by the sea so it is usually breezy at least. I will try outdoor photos with my next project (which is almost finished) and you can let me know what you think, as long as the weather allows. Your photos are fabulous!! so I’m more than pleased to take any tips 🙂 Thank you 🙂

    LOVE this kit! You’ve done a wonderful job, it’s so sweet. I’m definitely copying this one and I can see myself subtly whipping it out at my next sewing class to play for compliments 😛 – thanks for the inspiration!

    • He-he! Good for you! Before you know it, they’ll all want one 🙂 When I go to shows I always have a look at people’s handmade bags and plan to make them 🙂

  19. I am definitely going to steal this one!!! I really could use a small kit for the hand work I drag around with me to activities. I will have to see what materials I have… actually wait somewhere… i think I have the perfect material now I just have to find it!!!

    • Great! I’m actually writing a proper pattern and tutorial for this but you will probably be able to sort it out. Take a look at Teje’s blog as she made another variation which was lovely. Enjoy 🙂
