Portfolio case for sewing supplies

Entirely made from scraps...

(The triangles are from Swoon, the red strips from Amish with a twist, and the black dots are left over binding from dog gone cute)

The pattern for this case is by Kerry and can be found as a free tutorial here.

It was fun to make, quite time consuming with the patchwork outer, but would be almost as cute (and much quicker to put together) if you used a single fabric for the outside.

It holds all of my miscellaneous sewing paraphernalia...

...as you can see!

I realised right at the end when I was trying to attach a too wide zipper tab, that the zip I used has a narrower tape than the one Kerry used, which means my case is not quite as three dimensional as it should be. I am guessing now that this is why a separating zip is specified in the pattern, maybe they are normally wider. Anyway I just used what I had on hand, but that's something to bear in mind if you want to fit some bulkier things into your finished case.

I am pleased with my sewing portfolio and happy to be able to claim another finish along finish!
