Strawberry Biscuit Sewing Kit

Strawberry Biscuit Sewing Kit from tutorial by Heidi Staples of Fabric Mutt

Even before I wrote my Stationery Kit tutorial, I knew that one day I'd have to try a sewing kit version. And when my friends at Riley Blake & Penny Rose Fabrics said that they were sending me a layer cake of Elea Lutz's upcoming Strawberry Biscuit collection...well, that's all it took. 

First, let's talk about the fabric. This collection is ADORABLE. Elea is a fabric designer who does vintage style so well, and the cuteness meter is pretty much always off the charts. I love every print in this collection, but the plaid Biscuit Birds might just be my favorite. Singing birds on a wire sharing a songbook? My heart melts every time I see them...

This kit is exactly the same as my original tutorial except that I added a bit of felt as a landing spot for needles and pins. I also sewed up a little 2 x 4'' case for my embroidery scissors that fits in one of the larger pockets so that they don't fall out.

My youngest daughter is absolutely fascinated by the darling animals inside the tiny envelope pocket on the left. She kept flipping it open while I was trying to style my photo shoot -- and was so thrilled with it every time that I didn't have the heart to shoo her away.

It seems like every time I write a post, I tell you that, "This new thing that I just sewed is my new favorite thing!" It must sound like I have a really short attention span, but the truth is that...well...it's the truth. Maybe that's one of the reasons why I love sewing so much. It feels new and special again every time I finish another project. After a day full of grading papers, folding laundry, and vet appointments, those few minutes of sewing that I can sneak in before dinner feel like an honest-to-goodness silver lining -- just one more reason to remember that life really is so good.
