Welcome to the 20117 Spring Sew Along – A Rolled Sewing Case!
Be sure to read the first two posts for Materials and Week 1.
This week we are going to be working on our interior materials.
I chose to make a sewing case with a single pocket. You may have a scissors pocket or other pockets as well. Be sure to consult your edition of Fanciful Utility for guidance on these.
For my pocket, I cut my silk to 5″ wide by 3″ deep. I hemmed the top and made a box pleat in the bottom for a roomy pocket. I laid the pocket right side down on the lining where I wanted it to be. (My plaid helped make that easy.) Using a running stitch, I attached the pocket. Then folded it up into place. I basted the pocket along the edges.
I have come to like the batting or lining used in some originals because it seems to give the sewing case more support when made of silk. I lined my interior fabric up on top of my batting and basted into place.
Next week, we will bind the interior to the exterior and add the tin tube.
