Travel Embroidery Case (with Tutorial)

Added May 20, 2011

by Geeky Seamst...

County Durham, O...






This is a circular embroidery case I made for the OTT Star Wars Swap on craftster. It can accomodate a couple of embroidery hoops, up to 6 inches in diameter, and supplies such as needles, thread, scissors etc.

I liked it so much I made myself one too!!

I’ve posted a tutorial up on my blog

Material Notes

lots of reused textiles (it’s my schtick) – outer is repurposed bedsheet, inner is saved from my sister in laws stash that was headed for the bin, zipper was bought from a charity shop for 20p and was clearly reclaimed.




Garment Type
Classic, Geek
