I really enjoy English Paper Piecing because it is very portable. Recently, I purchased a small rotating cutting mat so I could more easily cut out pieces using templates. I had plans to make a carrying pouch for my supplies, and when I got the rotating mat, I altered the size to accommodate the mat. Also, I did a favor for gozer in exchange for some scraps of this fantastic Frankenstein fabric she had. I figured that Frankenstein was pieced together, so it seemed appropriate for my EPP pouch Smiley

The folio has 6 EPP hexagons (2") appliqued to the outside, as well as a zipper pouch on one end, plus a bunch of pockets on the inside.

I don't have a tutorial right now, but I'm planning to make something similar for my embroidery supplies, so when I don, I'll post a link to the tutorial here, in case anyone is interested Smiley

And, sorry for the not-so-great pictures. The light is not good for pictures right now...

Completed folio:



Inside (with some supplies):



I fussy cut the hexagons, and stitched them together to make the applique strip. Then, I stitched them on to the outside piece of fabric.



Each piece of the folio is made with the outside fabric (black) and the lining fabric (orange). I stitched and turned all of the individual components, and then I joined them all together. There's a bit of a trick to get it all nice and neat looking, but I don't have a photo of it (but when I do the tutorial, it'll be there).

Putting in the zipper for the zipper pouch:




Stitching all of the pieces together! It's inside out right now.



I meant to put the zipper pouch on the other side, but wasn't paying careful attention. It actually worked out better because when the cutting mat is inside, it gives the bottom/back/right half (depends on your perspective) more structure.

Thanks, gozer! The fabric worked out exactly the way I was planning- so thanks a bunch for sharing it with me Cheesy

And, once I find some leftover drop cloth (it's buried in the stash), I'll work on the tutorial!

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Thanks, pottermouth! I got the fabric from gozer, and I love it! And, the zipper pouch is the best part- I almost wish I had put in 2 of them!
