Sew Portable Travel Set: Sewing with Singer

Thursday, April 20, 2017

Earlier this year, I was approached by Robert Kaufman to stitch up my Sew Portable Travel Set in the new prints coming to their Sewing with Singer fabric collection in June 2017. I mean how perfect? I travel set for a Singer Featherweight, made from fabric that has Featherweights on it! I had to photograph the set with my white Featherweight of course.

The set features a sturdy tote bag with a hard bottom to carry the machine in. There is room on both the front and back of the machine to carry projects, which also helps protect the machine. The exterior is quilted, with a layer of canvas to add extra structure.

Heavyweight handles are made from cotton webbing and a layer of quilting cotton on top. They're sturdy and wide enough so that they don't dig into your shoulder.

The second piece in the set is a drawstring bag. This is the everything size, which is also in the Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern. It holds the foot pedal, keeping it from scratching up the machine bed.

The last piece in the pattern is the extension table cover. It still helps to protect the table from getting scratched by the machine head! It's quilted and has the same layers as the tote.
The Sew Portable Travel Set Pattern is available in my online shop, here.

This is super cute!! I can't find the fabric you used though ... only the white background with black machine.

Oh this is really cute. I definitely need to make a few sets. I have two featherweights I would love to sell to a good home. Making these accessories might be a great addition.

How adorable & functional! I have a FW whose case is in good shape, but I think I would much rather carry it around in one of your cute totes!

So perfect! I have your pattern for this tote set. Now I need to get my hands on the fabric with the black featherweight!
