wow! I really love this!! great job! I would love a tutorial if you have time
Tutorial? Honestly, this is what I did.
1) Draw a rectangle slightly larger then you want the case to be.
-I drew mine on newspaper and then drew (roughly) where I wanted all the bits to go.
-Once I had the right size, I cut out one outside fabric, one inside fabric, and one stiff interfacing.
2) Decide on the size for your pocket (for the back).
-Once I picked the size, I cut out two pockets from the outside fabric.
-I stitched the two pocket pieces together (right sides together), leaving an opening for turning.
-Then I turned the pocket right-side out and hand stitching the opening closed.
-Finally, I stitched the pocked to the outside fabric (back of the case). Sew three sides only!
-If you want, add a flap. If not- just add some velcro to hold your pocket shut.
3) Iron the interfacing to the outside fabric (back side).
-If you don't have iron-on interfacing, stitch it loosely. You just don't want it wiggling around.
4) Adding stuff to the inside.
-I used heavy felt for all my inside pieces.
-Basically, I just cut out what I wanted and stitched it to the inside fabric.
-The scissors and hoop are help in place with velcro on the straps.
*For the pincushion I used the outside fabric, cut a square, sewed it on three sides, stuffed it, stitched the other side... then outlined it with felt to make it look cleaner.
5) Putting it all together!
-Pin the outside fabric to the inside fabric- right sides together.
-Place the fabric tab (to velcro the case closed).
*You want the tab facing in between the finished sides!
-Stitch along the outside edge. I double stitched. Leave room to turn it right-side out.
-Turn the case right-side out. The interfacing is thick, so leave a big enough hole for turning!!
-Hand stitch the opening closed.
6) Add your velcro.
-Sew or iron it on. Depends on what kind you use. Could also use snaps, magnetic closers...
-Add all your needwork stuff and go on vacation. Project well done!
