string scrap sewing kit

When I was making my qayg string quilt, I ended up with small, beautiful scraps. Since these were still far to beautiful to throw away, I pieced these tiny things into a sewing kit. It has been on my to do list ever since I made one for my modernista swap partner almost a year ago. I had wanted one for myself but had pushed that aside in favor of other projects.

I like this little one. It's so very me - the calm me - not the jacked up on three cups of coffee me. There's three pockets, one on the left panel and a divided pocket on the right panel. There's also a scissor pocket, a felt needle book and the white ribbon to hold thread. The measuring tape is mostly for show, but I guess might be useful sometime.

I had fun with the quilting, although it is a bit hard to see in these photos. I machine bound it (still trying it on small projects, even though it still isn't coming out nicely) in a shot cotton. Never bind in a shot cotton. It was ridiculously hard to keep pressed well so the binding is a bit wonky. But all in all, I'm pleased with it and it was a fun use of the scraps leftover from my strings quilt.
