Traveling Sewing Kit

I made a new traveling sewing kit:

I used plastic canvas inside the fabric pockets, and added black felt (by hand) to the insides.  It is stitched together by hand with an elastic cord and button for the closure.

I think next time I should possibly cut the plastic canvas into strips for the flap portion only, so it would lay down a little more nicely.  I could stitch between the strips with a row of stitching to hold them in place.  Just an idea.

All I need now is some folding scissors, and it will be complete.
It has white thread, black thread, and tan thread in the kit, as well as a tape measure, pins, needles, and a safety pin.  There are some buttons as well.  A fun little project.
