Sewing Kit

I have been meaning to make myself a sewing kit for ages and was really wishing I had when we were away last week. I'd packed scissors, needles and a tape measure, but couldn't manage to find anything when I needed it, so I finally made myself something to carry it all around in.
I have seen a few different ideas in Japanese craft magazines so using those for inspiration I made it the perfect size to fit my little scissors and made a little pincushion to go in it and it's the perfect size to fit into my handbag. I'm ready to sew anywhere at anytime.

It looks wonderful and I like the pincushion that has the same design!

beautiful work- i might have to copy that idea! i'm forever toting my pincushion, scissors and threads in my everyday bad, and stab myself regularly.
i love the roll-up design.

What a great idea, and so much easier to find what you need in a hurry. I love the fabrics you used too.
