There is something so much fun about packing and organizing with a sweet little handmade case. Especially if you made it yourself! This week I had the pleasure of sewing up Virginia Lindsay’s adorable Vintage Inspired Train Case pattern.
Virginia is the clever and talented author of the book Sewing To Sell, as well as the blog Gingercake.
And once again, I felt like the fabrics picked the project! I simply had to use this beautiful bundle of Daydream by Josephine Kimberling for Blend Fabrics. Don’t you think that Cherry Blossoms print looks like a vintage train case already?
This case might look like a simple shape, but believe me, when you are sewing rectangles to ovals, you want the dimensions to be right or it just won’t fit! Virginia’s train case pattern is spot on, with plenty of tips along the way to ensure a beautiful result.

At my daughter Chloe’s high school (can you believe my baby started high school???), the lunch lines are so long that she has been skipping lunch! She’s always starving by the time she gets home because she doesn’t want to carry a big lunch bag as well as her heavy backpack – poor girl!
I am so in love with the beautiful look of simple patchwork quilts with lots of squares. This is the perfect way to use up fabric scraps like I did, or you can make a beautifully coordinated quilt with pre-cut 2 1/2’’ square fabric pieces that come in mini-charm packs.
I’m also in love with the process. If you feel like quilt making is your escape from the world and sitting down to sew for a few hours makes your troubles fade away… this is the quilt for you!

Sew a patchwork house quilt block with my easy photo tutorial. The house quilt block is one of the most beloved blocks in all quilting. I think it’s because quilts are lovingly made in the home, for the home, and often reflect our desires for the kind of home we want.
Hi there everyone!! This is Sarah from Blue Susan Makes. Caroline is still on her little vacation, lucky gal, so I thought I’d pop in and give you a little hooded towel inspiration. I was so excited when I saw that Sew…
Isn’t this bag adorable? My friend Sarah who co-authored Just For You with me has finally released her first pattern and I’m so excited for her. Here is my Mini Tulip Tote. I’ve had it for over a year (she took…
There’s nothing better than a sewing machine and a stack of fabric when it comes to last minute gifts! I don’t know about you, but I hate going to the store to search for a gift that I should have thought about sooner. Plus I really think that handmade gifts are better. They say ‘I cared enough to spend time to make this for you!’
Yes, I can attest to the fact that attaching zippers that way is not as easy as it may look. Good job!
so pretty! That tassel really makes it extra pretty. I will have to try that on my next one. Thanks Caroline!
