Found some great ideas in two sewing books to make this beauty.
Super Cute Paper Piecing book and Stitched Sewing Organisers
The sewing organiser was a two in one case. I changed it a little by putting the clasp at the top and putting a pocket on the back.
It was the perfect size for a notebook and colouring pencils and a book in the back.
This week I started on a new project for myself. As I travel on the train to and from work I like to do some of my craft sewing embroidery stuff on there. But as I’m working on something my scissors are sliding all over the place and I keep losing threads etc. I decided it was time to make something for holding those necessary items so I made this.
I started by getting two pieces of red felt, one for the inside and one for the outside. I ironed on some interfacing to both pieces. I embroidered my design on the front of the outside one.
I then made some pockets and connected to the inside piece. Most of them I made two pieces of felt for extra strength. The middle yellow pocket for the scissors I also ironed on interfacing to make it a bit tougher.
The section on the left I made a flap to put my needles and pins in, but it lifts up and there is another pocket underneath.
I added a snap with a snap machine and made a double felt piece to use to keep the scissors in place.
I sewed some elastic onto the inner edges of one of the main red pieces and a button onto the back of the outside felt piece
