Travel Case for Flat / Curling Iron ~
a Sewing Tutorial
I’m in love… with all this pink!
This case isn’t just pretty… It’s insulated with Insul-Bright and perfect for packing a hot iron!
I teamed up with The Warm Company to bring you a tutorial and Give-Away!
Here are the supplies you need to make this case:
Body ~ exterior fabric 12” x 18”
Body ~ lining fabric 12” x 18”
Insul-Bright for body ~ 12” x 18”
Pocket fabric ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Pocket lining fabric ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Insul-Bright for pocket ~ 12″ x 11 1/2”
Binding ~ aprox 2 yards
Ribbon ~ 40”
Velcro Dots ~ 2 sets
You can find the complete tutorial below but here are a couple tips on quilting the case and binding the pocket…
I started with Insul-Bright so the case would be insulated. If you’re not familiar with this product you can use it to insulate anything ~ hot or cold! I use it in my Lunch Bag Tutorial AND my Potholder / Towel tutorial)
I layered the bag parts (Insul-Bright / fabric) following the tutorial and marked them for quilting using this hera marker I found on amazon. I used my ruler and marker to make marks at 1″ intervals to keep my stitching lines straight..
You can see the marks here…
After all my lines were marked, I just stitched right on them!
After my quilting was done I got my binding strip aligned on the top edge. I lined up the raw edge of the binding with the raw edge of the pocket and stitched the binding on with 1/4″ seam.
Then I flipped the fold edge to the back of the pocket, top stitched along the binding catching the back (fold) of the binding on the lining side! Easy!
Place your quilted layers together and bind around all the edges, add your velcro… Done and Done!
