Thanks for all the enthusiasm and interest in our Sew Along which starts on June 1. We are so glad that many of you will be joining in the fun!
I wanted to share this Patchwork Craft Tool Wrap with you. This was a bonus project that I designed to complement A Spoonful of Sugar. You can download the free pattern from Sew News. The Patchwork Craft Tool Wrap features a simple patchwork exterior, and has a number of internal pockets to store your favourite sewing tools and supplies, They can be wrapped up so that are ready to take with you to a sewing class or retreat.
I added some sewing themed labels for interest, and found the perfect ceramic beads to use on the wax cord ties. The free pattern can be found here.
To celebrate the start of our SewAlong this week (generously sponsored by Ministry of Fabric), I am giving away two copies of A Spoonful of Sugar: Sew 20 Simple Projects to Sweeten Your Surroundings Zakka Style

I’m fairly new to sewing so I keep experimenting – pouches, quilts, clothing for my daughter, small projects for the home. I look forward to trying out the projects from your book. We’re short of supplies here in Dubai so if I do win, I’ll be thrilled to order from Alisha ?
