Simply Strippy Sewing Kit

May 27, 2016

Ever since I bought the Scrap Happy book by Retro Mama for #mayisformakers I couldnt wait to make a little Simply Strippy Sewing Kit! They are so ridiculously cute, easy to travel with, and great as a scrap-busting project - but they're also amazing gifts :) If you haven't checked out this book yet, you totally should - especially the hashtags on Instagram for all the finished projects people have made! So amazing!

Alright, let's get to it :) I used various scrap fabric prints from B&C lines (Hello Darling, Vintage Picnic, and Daysail) as well as some Michael Miller basics, Little Miss Sunshine, Farmhouse, and some various organic prints from my stash. Binding is an aqua Cloud9 Cirrus Solid.

My goal was to make this very aqua / blue / green as I have a special swap i'm in and this little kit will be tossed in as an extra for my partner! Shhh don't tell...

I added a little tag and a small felt needle holder as well. AND I even hand stitched the binding down to finish it off :) My new favorite thing to do. I'm not 100% perfect at it (yet) but I'm progressing and I love the way it makes your project look more polished and tied together as opposed to machine binding.

Now, will I hand bind all of my quilts? Um, no, lol. Sorry I don't have the patience or skill for that yet, but maybe we'll get there someday...

That's all I have for today, I hope you enjoyed these pictures and this little kit as much as I have. 

Do you own this book, or have you seen the Simply Strippy Kits floating around social media?
