Since I decided to try to try to finish a quilt top I started last summer, it was necessary to pull out my quilting supplies. Looking at this little case I made to take with me to school or in the car, I thought I would share with you how I made it.
On the internet I found the sweetest little pattern for a tea pot, so I pulled out some of my favorite remnants of flannel and appliqued them to the top.
I used the material above the pockets for pins, needles, and safety pins. I cannot do without them close at hand. This area is basically my pin cushion! Once I completed the little project I still had some pieces of the flannel left over so I decided to make myself a pin cushion. Well, I LOVE IT! I use is all the time.
I did not have a pattern for any of this...it was a “do as you go” project which turned out to be one of my favorites and most useful. Only the teapot design came from a pattern. I have lots more tools that are not in this kit, but it does hold everything I need if I am on the road or anywhere away from home and want to sew or quilt.
