Train Case - Thought I would make this train case, which is a project from Husqvarna, for my young niece who wants to be an actress. It turned out pretty nice, but I found it quite fiddly with all the layers and very stiff interfacing (never used that before). I couldn't get it flat enough to go under the head of my machine and keep it under the presser foot to complete the seams, which was frustrating. I probably made it more difficult by using a stiff canvas fabric & a vinyl lining as well. But, I didn't give up, and here is the end result. Hope you like it.


(Finally was able to get to my laptop to rotate the photos. They should display properly now.)

Your vanity-case is super! i love the design. Congratulations ! I have done a lot of them in different size for electric iron,clothpins, makeup for my daughter who is student. The more difficult was the first one , then I used an extensible fabric sticked with iron on a fleece fabric with vinyl as lining and so the seams were not so difficult to sew and I even can quilt too. Thank you for sharing and amitiés de France.

Thank you. The instructions call for using fusible fleece on the lining, but since I used vinyl I omitted the fleece. It also said to quilt the top & bottom panels, but I thought those were already stiff enough so I just assembled the smooth pieces. The size is great, and can be used for many purposes. I would love to see some of yours if you have photos.

Cuties, please click on other Cuties flowers (to water). I just gave all below a flower and as I was clicking, I saw that some had only a third of what they should have. ...Pity, as our summer is hot & dry enough.

Thanks Toogie. You should try one. It's a big size, and your grandchildren could use it to keep their little treasures, some toys or crayons and markers.

That is adorable. Is there a web site for the pattern? I really like your choice of fabric and design.

Beautiful work and useful too!
If I can give you a recommendation about very simple and great image program (free): IrfanView. It is very simple to use, you can easily rotate, resample your image (just a "R" button for rotation of an image and "S" to save). You can cut and paint too. Or what I love: It is very easy to save image screenshots of your PC. This is a for me a very simple way to save any image from the internet.

Thank you so much. My post was done on a cell phone, and everything looked as it should when I loaded the photos. I finally got home and looked at my laptop, and that's when I saw things were upside down. I think I got them turned upright now. Thanks for the info on the image program.

Most excellent...she will love it...was this done in-the-hoop or put together with your sewing machine?

Thanks. The embroidered lipstick design is the only part done in the hoop. The rest is a sewing project.
