First Project for 2014...

I raced into Spotlight a couple of days before Christmas to buy a zip and came across a display of portable light boxes with a 30% off sign…I've looked at these so often but the $99.00 price tag meant look but don't touch…30% off, now that was something I could work with…so, Merry Christmas to Me!!!!…
The light box itself is quite thin and takes up very little space but the cardboard box it came in, not so much…a solution was required...
Some old old fabric found in the stash boxes and ta dah!...a quilted pouch…with a pocket added for the electric cord...
Less space to store and easy to pop into the crafty basket to take to quilty happenings…

First finish for 2014 and only five days in...this was what I went into the sewing room to make when I got distracted and made a cup bag instead...

Oh and the zip? Safe and sound in the same state I bought it home in…but hey, at least I have it now for when that project yells loud enough...

Happy Stitching...

A fantastic Idea! I think I might need to make one to hold my new blending board and carders lol. Quite spiky items.

What a great find - I have a light box that takes up about a third of my cutting table so it lives in the shed.

I love your pouch to keep it all snug and safe !
