Zakka Style Sew Along - Sewing Kit

It's week 4 of the Zakka Style Sew Along and time for the sewing kit.
After the success of the denim with last weeks pin cushion I decided to use it again for this project. The instructions were very clear and it came together very quickly.
Instead of the leather thongs for the ties (which I didn't have) I have used the hems of the jeans and as I don't have many stamps I quilted a circle from the interior fabric to the front of the pouch.
The green spot fabric is from the shoe bag my Boden pumps came in and the trim is from Joan's Scrap bag.
This is going to be my new traveling kit, but I could see a few of these being made for presents. I'm even thinking of altering the layout, so the pocket run along the bottom with more smaller divisions for crochet hocks and dpns!? A nice hooky roll could come from this project.
Please go and have a look in the Flickr group, the projects are stunning, they have some amazing fabrics and are all so professional looking than my rustic one!!! Also if you'd like to know more about the Sew Along please go over to Lindsey at L R Stitched to have a peek. 


  1. Ooh, way to recycle there, very efficient!

  2. Wow that looks great and useful too! I hope you got my email the other day - please could you send your address to me as I am ready to send my parcel to you? I know I'm early, but I thought I might as well send it as I have everything ready.
    Best wishes, Pj x

  3. Love sewing roll....I keep seeing these and think I should get off my bum and make one!

    Your sewing really is fantastic!

  4. This is fantastic. I have two huge ziploc bags of denim salvaged from my boys pants. What a great use for it.

    I think your sewing kit will travel a lot better then the muslin ones. I worry when something is made of such a thin fabric.

    Love this!!!

  5. i love that you used the hem for the ties ! great job on your sewing kit !


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
