A Hexagon Travel Sewing Kit!

I had seen this darling little sewing kit on Pinterest a number of times.  I fell in love with it and followed the link to The Zen of Making Blog.  She has a wonderful tutorial to make the kit which she has so generously published for our sewing pleasure.  Well of course I had to make it!  I bought my fabric last week and then had to work on it this long weekend.
It closes with a magnetic clasp!  
It has three pockets inside constructed with a concertina fold on the sides.   That equates to 3" of real-estate in which to store your project.  The front pocket is wide enough to fit two altoid tins side by side.  I have my sewing notions in one tin.  Perhaps EPP papers will go in the second tin.
 Isn't it darling!  Be warned though that there is ALOT of hand stitching involved in the making of this pouch.  I reckon it is totally worthwhile though.  I will be making another one of these soon as my daughter wants to make one and I will make a second to demonstrate to her how it is done.


  1. that's very cute. hmmmm perhaps I need to make one too...

  4. Beautiful! A friend made one for me and it is amazing how much you can fit in the pouch. I've been using and enjoying my pouch every day!

  5. I love your hexie sewing kit! It's awesome!
