Here is my update on my embroidery sample that I've been working on, not even a quarter of the way done, but It's been fun learner the different types of embroidery stitches too.

But mainly this post was for the prototype that I put together for a travel embroidery case.  I ride the train alot, and like I have said in my previous post that it can take me upward to an hour to get to work sometimes Sad.  I sometimes take my crocheting with me, but now I've been taking my embroidery with me.  I use to just shove every thing in a ziplock baggie and be done with it.  Then I got an idea to make this book type of carrying case.  It's not really well put together at this point, I was kind of just going on the fly with this, as well as my sewing machine was dying on me ( I guess it's type to buy a new on Sad ).

it has three flaps that fold inward to help keep every thing in so nothing falls out.

My scissors, seam ripper are nicely held in place, as well as having a little built in pin cushion

A section for all my needles and a button loop to hold my loop. LoL

And the other side has a pocket for my cardboard thread thimbles, as well as a place to put my pencil.  I added a ribbon across the back last minute.  I thought it was a great idea to have a place that I can a binder clip to hold my cards for the threads to keep them handy instead of having to reach into the pocket all the time.

This is just a prototype for right now. So I wanted to get every one's opinion of things that I can fix if I do decided to make these to sell.

Super cool! I love that everything fits into that case, but it seems so conveniently sized!

Ah, great case - love the print, and how it has space for everything.  Your sampler is lovely too.

that is amazingly awesome Smiley  I love it!

I dare to love forever

I need to destash a ton of yarn and fabric.  Send me a PM if you'd like to do a personal swap for some.

I really want the (empty) glass skull bottle that Crystal Head vodka comes in, so PM me if you're willing to swap me one!

I really love your case! I'm a big fan of all things with pockets and loops and everything right where you need it. Every other weekend or so I have three hour bus ride and I usually knit, but if I had a nifty case like this I might take my embroidery instead. Your sampler is quite nice as well, I like the colors you're using.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Cool stitching! The case is very nice too!

This is the most awesome sew-on-the-go case ever and I will put this on my christmas list when you start selling these! Everything has a place, nice touch with the ribbon for the binder clip. I'd pay $20-$25

Love it! I recently had a similar idea, because I love having a place for everything and a convenient way to carry a whole project and its tools. I hadn't thought it through this far, though, and I think you did an awesome job! Great work!

I really like both ideas.  The sampler is going to be great when it's finished -- is it going to be a wall hanging?

The travel case looks very useful and seems to be a good size to carry with you in a bag. 

Like you and others on this thread, I have a commute that's 45 min-1 hour and I end up reading, checking email, or knitting.  I've not attempted to take my embroidery on the subway yet because I couldn't figure out a good way (other than the handy ziploc bag) to bring my supplies.
