A Finished Sewing Kit and a Winner

Thanks to everyone who entered my wee giveaway.

I had fun reading what you would all carry in your sewing kits, and to be honest, it helped me to decide what to make. You see, I realised that most people intended to keep it pretty minimalist. They didn't want to carry a huge bags, just some thread, some needles, some pins and some thread (I was amazed by the number of people who didn't mention a quick unpick- my most trusted and most used bit of sewing equipment!)

To be honest I was a bit bored of making these sewing kits, and its been AGES since I have sewn a zip, so I decided to make a customised zippy purse.

As the case isn't too big, I didn't want to limit accessibility by adding pretty tabs to the zip, but I also didn't want it to have ugly zip ends. So I decided to try out this tutorial for avoiding dented corners. Just look at that zip, isn't it beautiful!

The pattern was made up as I went along incorporating elements of lots of different purses that I have made in the past (my favourite kind of sewing!)- I'm pretty pleased with it.

Inside there is a special pocket for a pair of embroidery scissors and on the outside there is a bigger pocket for whatever you would like.
Coz pink elephants go perfectly with Little Red Riding Hood don't they!?!
Anyway, enough waffling on... I bet you guys want to know who the winner is!

Congratulations Kelli!
I'll be in touch.
In the meantime I'm off to take Rascal to her swimming lesson, hope she likes her new swimming teacher.

  11. I love your pouch - after travelling this year (just a quick trip across the ditch) I realised I needed a minimilised bag like this too - the bigger one I used for my stitching took up too much room in my carry-on luggage. Yours is a lovely design.
