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.
If I had but half of your creativity and cleverness, I’d be a happier gal.
Good for you. The case looks beautiful. Yes, put labels on the pockets. Isn’t it fun to create things using old fabric ,etc,?
That case is beautiful. I wonder if that is a sewing project that I could handle. I’d love to try it sometime!
