Modern I Made

I love swaps! I love sewing for other people and working to make something I think they’ll like! I joined this round of Modern She Made on Flickr. I’ve participated in the first two rounds of this swap as well! I’ve always made pillows for my partners. But this round, my partner requested a travel sewing kit. I thought it would be nice to make a matching pouch too! After a bit of stalking, I noticed her love of stars. I paper pieced some stars to be the focus of her pieces.

She also said she loved linen; I chose a linen blend in charcoal grey. Since these are for travel, I wanted a color that wouldn’t show dirt.

I don’t think I’ve ever used so much interfacing. And there’s something about using hardware that makes me feel more legit!

The star is actually on the back of the kit:)

The inside of the kit has little pockets and a vinyl zipper pocket. And a spot to put needles and pins. Plus a spot for a real pen!

Here are some close ups.





Fingers crossed that she loves it! I’m thinking about making the kit into a pattern or tutorial. Anybody want to make one?

  2. as I’ve already said this is AMAZing. Your sister here wants one or would at least be interested in taking a class to try and learn to make it.

  3. Amazing! Another class is born…..Your friend will love it! I particularly like the hardware with the linen. Need to learn to make those stars!

  4. You are amazing!!! I enjoyed watching you create, modify, and make a product that will be so fun to use.
