Sponsored Project - Supply Case from SewingRepublic.com

Supply Case

by Stacy Schlyer

  • 3/8 yard of cotton fabric for outside of case and inside pocket
  • 3/8 yard of cotton fabric for case lining
  • 13" x 13" square of low-loft cotton batting
  • 1 package of " wide, double-fold bias tape or enough fabric to make 1 3/8 yards of bias binding
  • 1 yard ribbon, leather string or cording
  • Coordinating thread

  • Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
  • Ruler



1. From outside material, cut one piece 13" x 13" and a second piece 13" x 7". From inside material and batting, cut one piece 13" x 13". Cut 2 pieces of ribbon, leather string or cording 15" each. Knot on one end to prevent fraying, if needed.

2. All 13" x 13" squares will need to have all 4 corners rounded (rounded corners will allow for easier application of bias tape). To do this, measure 2" from a corner. Connect these points by making a curve around the corner. Repeat for 3 remaining edges and cut off excess material. Also repeat for two long edges only of the 13" x 7" piece. The same look can also be achieved by tracing around a jar lid.


3. Hem the long edge of the un-rounded 13" x 7" pocket piece, fold over 1" to wrong side of material and press. Fold over 1" again and press. Straight stitch close to pressed edge.

4. To mark the front pocket sections, measure over from one short side and mark: 2 1/2", 4", 5 1/2", 7 1/2", and 9 1/2". Using tailors chalk or marking pen, draw vertical lines at these points.

5. Place pocket on top of lining material, matching raw edges and rounded corners. Baste pocket in place by sewing 1/4" around the outside pocket edge.

6. Stitch pocket to lining across marked lines. Be sure to backstitch at pocket openings to secure your stitches so the pocket does not come loose when in use.

7. On the outside of the case material, find the center of the side edge and mark. Place ribbon on wrong side of material and sew 1/4" from edge (if there is a right and wrong side of the ribbon, make sure the ribbon is facing down with the right side laying on top of the wrong side of the fabric).

8. Then fold ribbon to the right side and stitch 1/4" from edge. This process will keep the ribbon from coming loose when pulled tight.

9. Sandwich the fabrics and batting together by first placing the wrong side of the outside case material facing up. Then, layer the batting and lining material on top (with pocket facing up) making sure to match all raw and rounded edges. Baste 1/4" around all outside edges, making sure the ribbons loose ends do not get caught in the stitches.

10. Attach double-fold bias tape according to package directions.

11. From top edge of roll, measure down 2 1/2". Fold outside material to inside lining, press in place and sew 1/4" from folded edge.

12. Fill with sewing essentials, roll and go!
