Sewing Case

I have been trying to sew some things together which I had stitched a while ago .... hence all these little finishes within a few days!!    So this is what I stitched together today - with the help of my new Bernina  - "Bliss" (and with some interuptions from a little puppy!!)

 And this is a favourite ..... Anni Downs "Sewing Case" from her "Some Kind of Wonderful" book!   I love the size and the fabrics and the stitcheries and just about everything about this great little sewing case!

The back of the sewing case is just pieced - no stitcheries.

And the zipper opens up and inside will soon be some of my little sewing bits and pieces!   I can hardly wait to use this little gem!    After buying the book and the kit for the fabrics (because I love Anni's choice of fabrics) I stitched the small stitcheries and then haven't had time to put it together - I have no excuse now that I have such a great new sewing machine!   Hope you are enjoying your weekend wherever you may be!    Hope there is some stitching involved!! xx


  1. Isn't this case just gorgeous. I haven't used mine yet but love it! It was a fair bit of work though it was worth the effort. Well done finishing so many things!

  2. The bag looks great - but so does the quilt just visible under the sewing machine!
    I enjoy reading your blog - best wishes for the new year.
