I recently made this travel sewing kit out of linen. Ever since I visited Sweden last Spring, I've been enchanted with the natural, earthy qualities of this fabric. I have a small but growing collection of linens and linen/cotton blends that I dip into now and then, and delight over often. You can find the pattern for the sewing kit in a lovely book called I Love Patchwork by Rashida Coleman-Hale.
It's a windy, cool day in Southwestern Ontario, perfect for sewing. But aren't most days?
