We live far apart now and I miss her so much every day. We talk on the phone at least twice a day but it just isn't the same as being able to hug her or laugh together in person. She will always be my best friend!
I love to make things for her! Yes, she can sew, but it's still fun to surprise her with a little something every once in a while! :)
Mom enjoys doing sashiko embroidery. She always has a little project going and I thought this would be a great little set for her.
I modeled the sewing kit after an unbelievable one that Tamiko made for hexagons. I loved it the minute I saw it and I have to admit that I was a little bummed when she said she wouldn't be doing a tutorial for it. So, I made my own version that was more tailored for general sewing or embroidery.
It has a pocket to hold your project and a strap that can keep two spools of thread attached and handy.
The center panel has a needle book and a pocket that holds a small pair of embroidery scissors.
Then there are two additional pockets to hold floss or other necessities.
I also made her a little project bag using Ayumi's awesome tutorial! I love these little patchwork bags, they are so fun to make and a really great size!
As for the travel sewing kit, I have chatted with Tamiko and she has given me the go ahead to write up a tutorial so that all of you can make one of your very own! Woo hoo!!! I will be working on it this week and hope to have the tutorial posted sometime next week!!!
They would make great Christmas gifts!! Yep, it's time to think about those things!! :)
