Sewing Kits

I previously posted pictures of the sewing kits*  in progress and then earlier this week I showed you one finished kit.  Here's the progression...

The fabric.  So very pretty.  
I have some leftovers; not sure what I'll do with those.

 The forms cut with the labels ironed and sewn on.

hard to tell where this was in the process.  I can't see if the pockets were added yet, but definitely not the binding or the strap.

This was my first time making a bias binding and I was terrified so I put off finishing these until December 23rd.  It turned out to be much easier than I thought and I was so mad at myself doing that.

A finished and filled kit! 

Here's what I put inside -- the Altoids tin holds safety and straight pins.

and here's what my YD had to say about it.  I think she liked it.

This one is for my OD.  I am taking it with me to England to give to her there.

This one I gave to one of my DILs.  I don't have a good picture of the fourth one :(.

*pattern, fabric, and labels from Sweetwater.  I just love their stuff / projects / patterns and fabrics.
