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.
