Weirdo or Whimsy?

Yea...don't really want the answer to that.

After making these fun matching kits for gifts, I had an idea I would make one for me last night...


I may have been cooped up too long because of bad weather, or maybe I was just hungry...

 My favorite fabric with some coordinates...check! (does it look a bit like an egg?)
 A great color of wool felt named "honey mustard" ...check!
 This is where it gets a little ummm...different.  I have had a towel I bought on clearance sitting on my sewing table for just the right project.  It wanted to move up in life from a humble towel to a very usable sewing kit....check!
I just have to keep it away from these guys...

Pattern is from Lori Holt from Bee in My Bonnet.  She has a handy little camera icon that shows her IG feed on her blog sidebar and there you will find the little tutorial on making a sewing kit from an orphan block.

It's a banana taco. No, it's a very cute sewing kit.

Carla says Banana taco....they are called empanadas which is like a deep fired taco full of fruit. Very cute sewing kit, and love the minions. Where did you get the cute measuring tape twill tape?
