Made for the lovely @jemimah in Positive Affirmations R-2.
When she mentioned all her sewing things were packed up & travelling on a cargo ship across the sea with an ETA of ??? I knew she needed a travel kit of necessary items.
Snaps, hooks, & a few buttons from my collection are knotted on individually so they can be snipped off one at a time. The big button is a magnetic needle minder
It was an adventure searching for green, purple & blue everything.
I used lots of beautiful batik in those shades too.
This was my first time making hexies & it was pretty fun finding a colour combo I liked. I cut out so many batiks, why not send the rest along as a starter project?
Love this Rumi quote.
Hand bound in more batik with two snaps to hold it closed.
I tested this pattern in PINK! but decided against the tri-fold. I like the book style, I’d happily make something like this again.
Beautiful book and lovely quote! I love how you color-coordinated everything.
What a lovely gift! I had to chuckle about you hunting down the right colors… because OF COURSE you had them!!
Beautifully done and I love the hexies. Sweet touch to the cover
I like the use of snaps much better than tying…a bit too fussy for me!
I also love the button needle minder…and the way you keep the needle threader safe from getting lost or falling out!
Well thought out and a wonderful thoughtful gift for @jemimah !
Beautiful in thought and in execution!
What a lovely thought, wanting her to have access to these tools! Love the colors, the fabrics - great job!
This is gorgeous and you are a wonderful friend to think of these things. I cherish the things you made for me for my move x
It’s even better in real life - so pretty, and beautifully made too.
I feel very lucky to have this, my friend, thank you! I’m going to be travelling a lot more often now (exploring Australia, and going home to visit family) and I know it will be well used!
this is sooooo pretty! great color palette and excellent work.
This is sooo full of cool! Nooks and crannies everywhere!! So awesomely done. Of course you nailed hexies!
They are HARD! You know I’m more scrappy than precise so whoo, what a challenge to do all that teeny, perfect, hidden stitching. It was worth trying. Not sure I have the patience for a repeat but we’ll see… definitely have to get more comfy with using a thimble.
This is awesome! Love the colours and all the thoughtfulness!
