We are gearing up for our last vendor show of the year which will be the Columbia Gorge Fiber Festival from October 28-30. The big announcement is the debut of our newest style case - the ETC (Everything Travel Case)!! We will have them available in some new sophisticated fabrics - and of course the classics and novelty prints.
We added a ton more storage by adding a huge interior zip pouch that measures 5" x 7" (now mint tins fit inside). You will be amazed at how much it holds.
We took the best features of our three top "small"cases and made a hybrid that is the perfect between-size case. In addition to the new center zip pouch, we made the back two snap pockets deeper to accommodate fixed circulars and longer cables. We toned down the colors for a more streamlined look. And you can still carry an entire set of interchangeable tips sizes 4-11.
This new case can hold multiple fixed circulars, a ton of interchangeable cables, a full set of interchangeable tips or a variety of 6" dpns or crochet hooks, fix it tools, small scissors, mint tins full of your small items like stitch markers, darning needles, scrap yarn, pen or pencil, etc., etc., etc.
I hope to see you at CGFF. But if you can't make it, these new cases will soon be available in the Etsy shop.
This project can be made using small pieces of fabric to create a zip pouch that can be used as a coin purse, cosmetics bag, or for your crafting notions. In this tutorial we will be using the scraps left over from the previous two Fat Quarter Fun posts to make three scrappy zip pouches, but you can use any fabric you have available.
You will need the following:
Free Small Zipper Pouch Pattern
7"-10" zippers (1 per pouch)
Fusible Fleece (6 pieces around 5" x 6")
Fabric scraps from previous projects, or 6 pieces approximately 5" x 6 1/2"
After making the three drawstring bags from previous posts, I had the pieces shown above remaining. The solid pink is around 12" x 20" and each of the pieces sewn together as strips measures 6 1/2" x 14". I decided to use the 6 1/2" as the width of each pouch and to make them 5" high.
Now you should have the necessary pieces to sew two pouches following the Small Zipper Pouch pattern. I used the remaining pieces of the pink lining fabric to make the side tabs by cutting a piece 2" by 12". Press this piece in half lengthwise (1" x 12"). Unfold and press each raw edge to the center crease and then fold and press the center crease again (1/2" x 12"). Sew close to both long edges and cut into 6 equal pieces.
Enjoy your finished projects!
I've been crafting my entire life, thanks to my wonderful Grandma Grace. I'm an avid needleworker and reader, who's been knitting, crocheting & sewing since the age of 9 - and I won't say how many years ago that was!
