First Aid Sewing Kit


With these bright coloured materials I took a lesson for making a new sewing bag. It is so much fun working with these green matching colours I have to be careful not to get carried away!

For the outside I used paper piecing. Before the next fabric was being stitched on, I added a ribbon with contrasting coloured thread . This way most seams are covered. Around the flowers I dis some machine quilting.

On the inside, the pockets are made with double folded fabrics to make them a bit more sturdy. The rings can be used for strings of embroidery threads.

In between the outside and inside there are 2 pieces of batting. The whole kit measures 25x46 cm (10.5x17.5").

This will be my new First Aid Kit for my next sewing emergencies!



Happy sewing, Hilde
