Emergency Kit

Late last summer I received a lovely package from Carrie P. If you don't know her, you must visit her blog A Passion for Applique. Carrie creates some very beautiful applique quilts.

Carrie sent this cheerful little pouch.

Don't you just love the pretty red and white fabrics??

I thought about how to use this cute pouch. With my upcoming trip to Quilt City USA, I thought it would make a great portable case for the essentials.

Not that I am planning on doing any quilting, but if something were to come up, it would be great to have an emergency kit, you know just in case :-)

I decided to add a little sleeve inside the case for a small pair of scissors.

I was able to sew the seam lines in the ditch so it does not even show from the top side.

There is plenty of room inside the case for a small cutting board and two acrylic rulers.

A small skein of thread fits right inside the smallest rotary cutter.

Needles, pins and a wooden presser complete the emergency kit.

All ready to go :-)

Thanks Carrie! My charming little case will be very useful for many other occasions too.

Happy Quilting!
