I tote hand stitching supplies and projects back and forth to our camp on a regular basis.
I've been using a see-through plastic food storage container for about a year. It's handy, but everything rolls around and gets disorganized when I pack it in my tote bag.
I wanted to make something that would help keep my supplies a little better organized for travel, so I searched online and studied all kinds of ideas and patterns. I eventually settled on the Road Trip Case by Anna Graham - aka Noodlehead.
I already had all the required supplies in my stash, including a zipper and some clear vinyl. The pattern also calls for double fold bias tape, but I just made my own.
The case has a large, see-through zippered compartment which is perfect for holding all kinds of little stitching accoutrements. The opposite side has 4 fabric pockets with velcro closures. I attached some felt pieces in the center for needle holders.
I'm pleased with how this project turned out. My sewing stuff is better organized and isn't rattling around in a plastic box! I'd definitely make the pattern again - the case would be a great gift item. A version with two clear zipper compartments would be great for organizing supplies for English Paper Piecing!
