Sew Portable Travel Set Pattern
Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Happy Tuesday! Thanks for your support of my new patterns! I'm excited to chat more about the Sew Portable Travel Set pattern today!
The Sewcial Lounge and retreats relatively often, I wanted something more reliable. Plus, this is prettier! Now, let's dive into the individual pieces!
You can find my tips and tricks for sewing with a vintage Featherweight here.
A removable flat bottom makes it easy to carry a machine in it. I used a piece of very stiff compressed cardboard from a package I received, but anything strong will do. Binder's board is the closest thing I can find to what I used. This would do perfectly! Even a thin piece of wood cut to size would work! It just needs to be a material that won't bend with the weight of the machine.
Lined Drawstring Bag is included in this pattern to be used as a foot pedal/power cord holder. It fits nicely inside the harp of the machine. It may seem unnecessary to contain it, but not only will your bag be neater, but it will keep the pedal from scratching the bed of the machine. These bags are handy for all kinds of things from notions and tools to sewing projects!
I used my Nordika fabric collection for this set, along with Pure Element solids by Art Gallery Fabrics. The interfacing I used is Pellon SF101. I used natural colored cotton canvas and cotton webbing both form JoAnn. Everything was constructed and quilted with my favorite dark gray Aurifil 50wt thread, which is in my Favorite Things Thread Collection.
