Butternut House Sewing Case

You wanted to see it finished! Here it is...

The idea of covering this sewing case comes from a Japanese magazine (Quilt Tshushin 156. June 2010) and because I don't have this magazine and also because I wanted a country design for my sewing case, I chose this design by Maggie Bonanomi and adapted it for this project.

The front.


The back.


Inside.

I cannot leave you without showing you a close-up.


I like this small sewing case a lot and it was so fun to make... It is the perfect project for making a very personal sewing case.

Do you like it too ?

Until later,

Edit Nov 16, 2011 : I forgot to tell you in the "how to" explanation in the comment section... I used a curved needle. Without a curved needle, I think it is more difficult to achieve a good result.

Info for my French readers : I received The Quiltmania catalogue with my magazine this morning and the book "With These Hands" by Maggie Bonanomi is going to be available in French. The Butternut House design comes from this book ;-)

  15. C'est une excellente idée, très joliment réalisée... Si j'ai tout compris, tu as "juste" recouvert cette valisette? Tu l'as magnifiquement fait, on ne voit pas du tout les coutures...

  19. Thank you all for your comments! You've made my day.
    To answer Viv's question on how to attach the appliqué piece to the sewing case : What you have to do is to appliqué the entire piece to the sewing case. There is a kind of "lip" around the border of the case. You "unroll" it so that you attach the piece as close as possible to the border (use your favourite appliqué stitch or ladder stitch). Once the whole piece is stitched in place and you let it go, the "lip" rolls a little bit forward and it looks as if it has always been there.
    Well... I do hope it makes sense...
    If it doesn't or if you want more details, contact me via my email address so that I can answer you directly.
    Finally, I have been asked where to find this sewing case. Here's the link to where I bought mine :
