12 Gifts of Christmas Blog Hop! - patchwork sewing kit tutorial {now closed}

October 16, 2011


Welcome!!!  I was so thrilled when Jennifer asked me to be a part of the 12 Gifts of Christmas Blog Hop!  What a fun way to get in the Christmas spirit and make some really great gifts!  Jennifer started out with her adorable double sided placemat tutorial.  And make sure you check out Ayumi's organizer basket tutorial, SO cute!  Make sure to leave them a comment to so that you are entered in both giveaways!!!



For my tutorial, I am giving you alternate options for my really fun travel sewing kit tutorial.  Click on the link for the full tutorial or you can always find it under the tutorial tab at the top of the page.  I LOVE these kits!  They are perfect for hand sewers and those of us that like embroidery but they are also a great gift for quilters (all those hand sewn bindings) or even someone headed off to college (everyone needs a mending kit at some point).  As always, if you have any questions or if something isn't clear PLEASE let me know!!!

By far, the most popular of all of the kits I have made has been the patchwork one!  If you want to make one with patchwork squares you will need to alter the measurements slightly.  You can, of course, use any type of patchwork that you want but the squares just don't work with my original measurements.  

So, here is what you will need to cut instead!:
  • 40  2"x2" squares
  • for the interior panels: cut two (2) at 5 1/2" wide x 6 1/2" high and cut one (1) at 5 5/8"wide x 6 1/2" high
  • for the pockets: cut one (1) at 5 1/2" wide and 4" high and one (1) at 3 1/2" wide x 6 1/2" high
All of the other measurements will be the same as in my original tutorial!

After you have your 40 squares all cut out, you need to arrange them in the order that you want them sewn.  The layout will be 4 rows of 10 squares each.  You will have something that looks like this:



We are going to sew the squares together with a 1/4" seam allowance.  If you have a 1/4" foot for your machine, this is the time to get it out!!  I always mark my rows with a small # in the top corner of the first square of each row so that I don't have to worry about mixing up the rows.  

Once they are all pinned, I lay them out and check the layout one more time to make sure I don't want to move any around.


Then sew your squares into the 4 rows of 10 and press all of your seams.  I press mine open but if you prefer to press them to the side go for it.  :)

Then pin your row one to row two, with right sides together, making sure to line up all of those seams as perfectly as possible.


Sew them together using a 1/4" seam.  Repeat this step until all 4 rows are sewn together.  Press all of your seams. 


Yea!!!  Patchwork complete!!  Now just continue on with the tutorial, just remember that you will need to use the adjusted measurements for the inside panels and pocket pieces that I listed above.  

I have one more variation for you!  :)  Instead of turning under the top edge of the scissor case and stitching it, you can bind the top like this:


After you print out the scissor case pattern, you will need to cut off 3/8" from the top of the pattern.   Use this adjusted pattern piece to cut out your scissor case.  Then bind the top using the same method that I use in the tutorial to bind the pocket pieces.  So simple but it gives it a different look.  You will then have a really fun sewing kit to give to a lucky friend!!!






Giveaway!

  129. What a sweet little needlecase! I don't know anyone who would love to have one of these for Christmas (I'm the only one who sews in my circle of friends/family), but I am going to have to find time to make one for myself! :)

    I would love to buy a charm pack or two from the Fat Quarter Shop... so many beautiful fabrics to choose from!!

  130. Well since I am regular visitor to the Fatquartershop and have a "cart" always filling up I can answer your question easily! The Schnibbles Full House pattern and the simply seasonal table top pattern from Prairie Grass.

  135. If I won $25 I'd get something just for me with no one else in mind. It'd be a present to myself, so I'd spend an hour or so window shopping and then make an impulse purchase! ;)

  141. I've had my eye on the Seville quilt pattern from Cluck Cluck Sew so I would definitely buy that and I would have enough left over to buy some fabric too. I love your sewing kit. I want one. Thanks for the tutorial.

    ReplyDelete
  142. Cute sewing kit! I wish I'd had this last month when I took my quilting on the road for 4 weeks!

    I would put my $25. gift certificate towards a Butterscotch and Roses jelly roll to finish off the lap quilt I have in progress now, or maybe an Amelia jelly roll to start something new!

    ReplyDelete
  143. If I won a gift certificate, I would put it towards some Lark by Amy butler.

    I had already decided to make your little sewing kits but, now I am going to make the patchwork fronts and the bound scissor sleeve.
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  151. I would put the $25 towards a tower of BLUEBERRY CRUMB CAKE by Blackbird Designs. It's been a long time since I've been interested in buying fabric and I would buy this to make a new quilt for my own bed.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Thank you for the tutorial!

  156. I love your travel sewing kit and cannot wait to make myself one for Christmas! (hee hee hee) I need that desperately, and love the storage for the thread! I have been waiting for the Fat Quarter shop to get the Robot Factory fabric in stock so I can make my grandson a comforter for his new big boy bed. So that is what I would spend the gift certificate on!

  173. I made something similar for my mother-in-law a few Christmases ago, but I really love this design! My mother always wanted me to make her one too, so maybe I'd better add this to the list. Thanks so much for sharing it!

    I'm loving Countdown to Christmas - I haven't yet bought any Christmas fabric this year!! So maybe that's what I'd buy :)

    ReplyDelete
  174. i'd have to get some of the new outfoxed FQ sets from lizzy house- i'd pitch in some of my money to get both the wisely and smartly outfoxed lines!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Thank you so much for your tutorial. I know this would be great gift for some of the special people in my life. If I won the giveaway I should purchase fabric to complete a few projects I have here but some fat quarters of the newest french general line would be fun.

    ReplyDelete
  176. I would love some Ruby charm packs. Love those Ruby colors! I would like to make a quickie quilt for my granddaughter. Thanks for the giveaway chance.

    ReplyDelete
  177. Great tutorial! I need something like this...and my sister in law just asked me to mend some of my nieces clothing- "I don't have a sewing kit". I'm not sure that she still wouldn't ask me if she did have one though? lol

    I would love to buy up some Bella solids. I have yet to try them & I hear they are softer than Kona...softer sounds lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  178. What a cute and functional kit! Thank you for sharing. I think if I won, I would buy either Sherbet Pips fabric and embroidery patterns or Circa 1934 fabric by Cosmo Cricket.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Oh my goodness! I am in love, love, love with this. :) I am going to make a few of these for my daughter (and her friends) who are off to college next year. My wish list of fabrics is so long so I might put it toward fabric but then again, some new patterns would be awesome too!

    ReplyDelete
  180. Love the tutorial so much! Thanks! If I won it would go towards fabric for my brothers Christmas quilt- I haven't quite narrowed down what I want to use for it yet though...

    ReplyDelete
  185. I have been wishing for a "Hometown" jellyroll, so I might put it toward that. Although, after reading some of these comments, I am going to be spending some serious time looking through the FQS...doesn't a "Sweet on NYC" FQ pack sound wonderful? That might be my second choice.

    Thanks for the giveaway, and the darling tutorial.
