Week 3: Sew a Pattern You Own But Have Never Sewn

This week started off with so many small projects! All of which were tutorial or self drafted patterns because my husband had asked for stuff specifically around the house. A tutorial I am currently working on for a remote control holder, will be posted in the next few weeks on Kimmy Snabric. Plus made Sweet Pea a cute purse (that still isn’t finished since she ran off with it before I could complete it😂.)

For the 52 Week Sewing Challenge, I decided my entry would be a cute little scissor/thread nipper pouch. We Sew All had a cute tutorial for Bernina early December. I printed the free pattern but realized it was way too big for thread nippers and more for the size of children’s scissors. Because of this I ended up sizing the pattern at about 88% and found that it fit my thread nippers well.

I AM NOT A QUILTER. So when stuff requires quilting, I usually hard pass but this actually wasn’t terrible.

I will say, I did not draw on the piece I quilted (I couldn’t find my water soluble pen) and for a first time, its fine. But in the future, I will be drawing guides so everything is evenly spaced. (The only saving grace is it will be folded and sewn so some of the unevenness won’t be noticed.)

I love how this smaller size fits my scissors.

And I think this size will make a fun gift for any crafters in your life (as will larger versions.) Since I am going to a dressmaking class in September, I will need to make a full size one just for me to travel with!

What are some fun travel sewing items you have made?
