A New Sewing Kit

Clover + Violet are having a sewing tutorial series for the summertime.  How fun, right?! 

This week there were a couple of tutorials for sewing kits and I thought I would play along.  I made my own version of a sewing kit to include the features I thought I would use/need most as I'm stitching on the go.

I used Daisy Cottage by Lori Holt for most of the outside and the inside pockets.  The trim fabric is a Riley Blake solid.  On the inside it is the Daisy Cottage + a bit of Wild World by Jenean Morrison.  The colors matched perfectly!

On the inside I included pockets and loops of elastic to hold various items.  I made a removable needle roll and pincushion.  I think I may add a little zipper pouch for the inside to carry smaller notions.  Hmmm...

The needle roll just rolls up and ties to fit inside and can hold many needles.  The pincushion has a Velcro back to keep it attached when not in use.  And that is it!  What a fun little project.  I think I may tweak the design a bit and make up a couple more for gifts.
