I've been a fan of Jennie (of Clover and Violet on Instagram) for quite some time.
She has a lovely feed full of pretty patchwork and Liberty fabrics and has written a variety of quilting and sewing patterns which get great reviews.
Just recently Jennie released a pattern for a 'Posey Supply Case' which looks like a perfect accessory for carrying my hand sewing patchwork pieces along with me or for keeping my other projects together in one place.
I've bought the pattern - you can find a link here: Posey Supply Case and I've signed up for the sew-along on Instagram. We're using the hashtag #poseysewalong if you want to follow the fun.
The case has a large zipped mesh pocket and smaller open pockets covered with a flap to stop things falling out. It also has a zipped pouch in the centre. This pink one above was made by Jennie.
Our schedule for the Posey Supply Case Sew-along is:
- October 5-11 - Gather supplies and make the cover
- October 12-18 - Make the inside and the pockets
- October 19-26 - Assemble the case
I'm not sure if I'm going to make just the one or stretch myself and make two. I've been busy sewing some 'spare' hexagons together (see picture below) which came from another project using Cool Britannia fabric from Benartex. I'm not sure I have any fabric left over for the rest of the case, most of it was scraps I picked up from The Skep and they were used up making a blanket for Ehsan (which you can read about in my post here). I'll need to raid my FQ boxes and scrap bins to find anything left that matches, so the jury is out on that one.
I also love the idea of some colourful crayons done with foundation paper piecing (FPP). I could use a variety of fabrics I have to match the crayon colours and pick something plain for the main body of the case, like linen or denim. It would probably look similar to this pouch I made a while ago.
I'm looking forward to seeing other people's makes too ...
