As usual my brain took me in a different direction to what I had planned :) Meet my new sewing pouch. It holds everything I need in one small convenient area which is great when my daughter wants to sit beside me on our wee couch.
Outside closed up measures 41/2"x51/2"
Inside is lined and has a ribbon strap so that I can wear it round my neck on long car trips. It's big enough to hold my scissors, seam presser, seam ripper, floss and some extra needles. AND it has some identity beading on the inside :)
The project needs a bit of refinement and I had some ideas for additions to it after I was finished, so I might experiment with some of my orphan quilt blocks to see what I come up with.
