Take Along Sewing Kit

The Fall 2010 Issue of Interweave Stitch is out!  This is easily one of my favorite sewing magazines because of the modern, fresh feel of both projects and fabrics.  I contributed one project, a Take-Along Sewing Kit, for the One-Yard Gifts story.  I used an adorable fruit+flower corduroy gem that I found hiding out at Joann’s for the outside–I actually had been looking for an excuse to buy it since I haven’t been sewing much–if at all–lately. The lining is from Denyse Schmidt’s Katie Jump Rope collection, which I had in my stash. I’m telling you this because I’ve already been asked– just one day after I got my copy of the mag. I’m glad people like it.

And here’s a secret for those of you that crochet and sew. I actually pitched this as a crochet hook case, but obviously it’s a more direct line to put a sewing project for sewers in a sewing magazine. So, I changed a few things up to suit the editor’s request, but you could easily, easily use this to store your favorite hooks, too! Just sew a few more lines for the pockets and you’re there. I love a case that holds both hooks + notions, and there aren’t many on the market for us hookers.

Of course, if you are looking at it from a sewing angle, it’s great too. Sweet little rickrack loops will hold your extra thread, and the zippered pocket will hold loose buttons and more. Especially for hand-sewing, this is handy to spready out on the sofa, even when  you’re not “on the go”, to be sure no pins or needles slip through into your cushions.

I’m glad I get to keep my sample of this one, because it’s going into my project bag straightaway!

  • I love this! I'm just learning how to sew and can't do much more than just a straight (sort of) line, but would love to make something like this some day. I'll have to pick up the magazine just in case. :)

    love it, linda! unfortunately this fabric from joann's is no longer available unless you are one lucky girl. i've been to five stores and no one has it. c'est la vie! i found some other corduroy that rocks it too. :) wonderful pattern. I can't wait to sew it up!

  • I really love this project! It's a great gift!

  • Rhsrunsal

    I especially love that it.thanks for your crafts..

  • So cute! I'm going to have to scrounge up a copy of Interweave Stitch and then check my fabric stash. I'm sure I've got something that's "me" only just as groovy as yours! If this were Ravelry, it would get a LIKE (1 kabillion).
