Even though it isn't quite finished, I couldn't resist posting pictures! I still need to make a wristlet to attach to the loop, sew a snap to attach the end of the zipper to the kit when carrying, and one or two other things.
Introducing my Travel EPP Kit !
On the left side, and behind the flap, there is room to store two small Altoid tins, a container of needles and my EPP papers. I still need to cover the lids of my Altoid tins with pretty pink paper, lol.
Small Altoid tins are perfect for holding paper clips, tiny binder clips, a thimble, pins and a needle threader.
The middle of the kit holds two tiny, or one larger spool of thread and a good sized pin cushion. The right side holds 2.5" fabric squares, my snips and the most important thing...band-aids, lol. I still need to add a seam ripper to the center pocket. I thought I had an extra lying around, but I can't seem to find it.
A zipper goes all the way around to keep all of my supplies clean and intact. Dang, I just spotted another thread I missed! Every time I think I have snipped the last wayward thread, I find another! I know my sewing "technique" needs improvement...I can't figure out WHY my zipper is wavy...but I just LOVE the design. After I finish the wristlet, zipper snap and covering the Altoid tins, my next hurdle will be writing the pattern. Wish me luck, lol.
