The latest thing I’ve sewn, hot off the machine….
….is this little travel sewing kit!
The pattern came from Peppermint magazine (issue 55 I believe?). I made the outside out of some of my blue fabric scraps, because I have a lot of blue fabric.
Inside, it’s got everything I’d need to mend stuff on the go. Or sew/embroider while travelling, too.
I did give it a test drive while I was at the beach recently, and it works well!
I adjusted the contents a little bit when I came home, because I noticed on the test run that a smaller tape measure is easier to travel with.
It’s only the second time I’ve used bias binding, too. I think it’s pretty neat for my second time – though it’s definitely easier to put on in straight lines! I think I’m getting the bug for patchwork things, what with the mug rug and now this kit. I have got a patchwork cushion cover on the Never-Ending To-Do List….
Anyways, see ya!
