Little Dolly Sewing Kit

Little Dolly Jet-Set Case from Sew Organized for the Busy Girl by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

Everything my friend Elea Lutz makes is magical, and her latest collection, Little Dolly, is no exception.


Vintage florals, dapper birds, loopy swirls that belong on top of a chocolate cupcake -- it's all so incredibly sweet. And with the project book and adorable accessories that Elea has created to go with these prints, there's a very good chance that I'll be sewing some dolls for my daughters before the year's out.

For my project, I decided to make a half size version of the Jet-Set Case from my book Sew Organized for the Busy Girl -- just perfect for a traveling sewing kit. I switched out the extra zipper pouch inside for a pincushion and made the exterior of the case out of patchwork squares. I also added a fun tape measure twill tape accent inside and changed the closure to a simple button and elastic. I'm so happy with how it all turned out!

To give things an extra handmade touch, I quilted both the case exterior and the pincushion top by hand, using a thick craft & button thread from Coats to add more texture to the piece. I also stitched the binding on by hand to give the case a more finished look.

Did I enjoy this project? Let's just say that my husband was quite amused to hear me repeating over and over while I worked, "I love this so much!"
