Five of a Kind - 2018

I am part of a group of 12 women that celebrate a Christmas gift exchange each year.  Instead of making 12 gifts, we each make fivK, hence the name Five of a kind.  This year I’ve made travel cases.  I started with a pattern by P3 Designs and made a few minor changes.  I changed the size slightly and added the hexies, triangle thread catchers and little pin cushions that can Velcro to the front when the case is open. 


Of course I had to make a sample for myself.  Here’s mine all loaded up.  Everyone won’t get all the goodies like mine, they will have to add their own supplies, but I did include the small cutting mat and a small ruler. 


The little triangle thread catcher folds flat so it can be tucked inside along with the little pin cushion. 


I  love mine and I hope the five that receive one like it too.  The exchange is on Friday the December 7th.  I’ll share the five gift I receive after that 




  1. You put a lot of time into these great gifts--what lucky friends! I must confess, I stole your idea for MY group of 15 quilters when I read about it last year. We'll be meeting on December 9th. I made a pieced red cardinal table-topper in a hexagon shape, 18" across and I know 5 of these friends will love them. Can't wait to hear about your exchange!

  2. Your travel cases are just wonderful

  3. Wow, what neat gifts! I love the fabric you used for the outside of the cases. The words are perfect for friendship gifts :)


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
