Sewing Kit - Zakka Quilt Along

I don't know if you are taking part in the Zakka Style Quilt Along that started earlier this month. I had planned to do it and of course, time ran away. But this week's making is a sewing kit and I am in need of a new one so I thought I'd made an attempt at it, especially after I received some perfect fabrics for it yesterday morning.
First I went over to Katy's blog to read her post about the sewing kit. She said they came together so quickly that she'd made not one but six of them! I thought I'd be lucky to complete one.
And then when I started cutting the fabrics yesterday afternoon, I thought I'd cut 2 out so I could maybe give one away. Anyway, Katy was true, they come together in no time and with a little sewing time yesterday afternoon before the school run and swimming lessons, and a little bit more in the evening once all the kids were asleep, I managed to finish my two sewing kits and I must say I love how they turned out. And this is at least one OPAM for this month!
I have used Essex linen for the outside
and a lovely vintage-styled fabric for the inside.
I didn't made the pincushion that goes with the kit in the book as I figured out that I wouldn't find it practical on the go (might be too bulky in my bag, might be lost, etc) and I can always pin my needles to the pocket anyway.
Well, this will be the giveaway I promised earlier this month, just leave me a comment on this post about swaps before the end of the month if you want to get a chance to win it!

  1. The fabric you used is gorgeous!

    I too considered making more than one, but it took me a long time to work it all out, so one it is.

    Kudos to you for fitting it in so well between engagements.
