Misunderstanding and travel case

I think I led a few people to think I altered the actual needle roll my sister made for me.  Not so.  I looked at her handiwork then made a case to hold our chargers for traveling.

Using the back panel of a perfectly-good-but too-small men’s dress shirt, a recycled bias strip from some pillows I got, and new fusible fleece, I made this travel case for electronic chargers for next to nothing.

This has four pockets in two different sizes, 4.5 x 4.5 and 3 x 4.5.  I wanted a contrast strip down the center but didn’t have enough fabric without piecing it.  I wish I would have figured out another method as I don’t like the imperfect seam across the panel.  Piecing striped fabric is too fiddly.

I know it’s just a utilitarian object but it can still look nice.

Finished size is 8.25 x 11.25 inches.

This was fun though I had to think about how to assemble this since I was making it up as I went along.

I also want to label the pockets so we can grab the right charger without taking them all out.

I’ll post a tutorial for this in case anyone else wants to make one.

  1. Good for you. The case looks beautiful. Yes, put labels on the pockets. Isn’t it fun to create things using old fabric ,etc,?
