Travel EPP Kit

I have to say, when Linda over at UggaBear Cottage was looking for a few pattern testers, it took me about 2 seconds to shoot off an email to her, volunteering!


I just love this little Travel EPP Kit.


It's a perfect little size to keep all your stitching supplies in, when your traveling.

Approximately 6"x6" and 1" deep.
It all zips up to keep everything contained. 
(my favorite part)
:-)



Linda even covered mini Altoid tins to match her kit.
Altoid tins...what a fabulous idea!
Keeping those darn pins from poking you when you travel!
Love it!

***
My little kit looks a bit different...
You know the "boys" here in the Moosestash...

They demanded to be "cover boys"

Those spools of scrap booking ribbon, 
that never seem long enough for much of anything,
are the perfect size to go around this little kit.
You know those ones you can pick up in 4 packs at "Target" for a buck!

I appliqued a moose right over it all.
 I think personalizing it was half the fun, but don't tell those boys that.
:-)


You can see all the wonderful storage it offers. 
The center top, is a little pin cushion. Now just how convenient is that?
And the thread below stores on a ribbon that Velcros open and closed. 
"Sew" easy to change out spools.

Pockets, and pouches and storage, oh my!
I just love this little guy.
:-)

The carry strap easily doubles as a key chain. 

I re-purposed a little find from the Houston Quilt show last year.
It made the perfect zipper pull.

Everything I need at my fingertips.
Thank you Linda, for letting me play.
:-)

You can find this great pattern over on Pattern Spot,
and Craftsy
(they both are linked for you)

HERE you can read more about it, and see 
another adorable tester version.

It's definitely one I recommend!

Now, I'm off to purchase a few of those little Altoid tins!
Have a great day.

  3. That is such a great idea! I love the covered tins idea too. I think the moose needs the cover spot and looks great on it.
