One Thousand Posts

Thanks to all of you who entered my little giveaway: the winner has been randomly thingied and (lucky for one) number 13 came up.

Congratilations Pricilla -  have emailed you - let me have your address so I can send it off.

Ah yes, 'it', the prize? Do you want to know what it is? It's this little sewing case.

It's based on this from Pinterest:

I couldn't find instructions but I reckoned I could work it out: Cut card in heart shape and half heart shape for inside of each section, and for the outside of each section, plus the pocket


 Use the card pieces as a guide to cut wadding for outside of each section

Use the card again to cut fabric slightly bigger than each piece of card
Glue card (to wadding where applicable) to fabric, gathering the curved edges to ease smoothly around the curve.

Start sewing together with whip stitch, shoving lace between the sections as applicable to create the hinges

Heave a sigh of relief that it's finished!

I do hope Pricilla likes it!


  1. Too cute. Would make a darling Valentine for a sewing secret sister.

  2. Sew darling.
    It's raining cats and dogs all day - I planned to sew all day. The temptation to derail and make one of these is growing. . .

  3. Lovely present, I can see why you wanted to make one. Very tempting!

  4. How sweet Benta, lucky Priscilla !

  5. Congratulations to Pricilla! Your sewing case is adorable :)

  6. Oh thats lovely! Well done Pricilla, lucky girl!
