It's Raining Cats & Dogs (Gadget Cases & Coin Pouches)

This is another 'catching up' blog post about some of my 2012 sewing and embroidery projects.

Last June I shared Kitty Cat shaped gadget cases and coin purses; some have been listed in my ArtFire shop, while others were 'adopted' through The Cozy Quilt Shoppe before they closed last October.

Update September 2016: Puppy Dog Cases have been moved to the Dog Lovers section my SewAmazin website. Kitty Cat Cases have been moved to the Cat Fanciers section of my website.

In anticipation of my first country fair last fall, I made a 'pack' of these Puppy Dog shaped cases (also featured in my late Summer quarterly newsletter) in Chocolate (Coco), Butterscotch and Smokey Gray colors.

The zippered cases are padded, fully lined and large enough to carry a cell phone (up to 3 inches wide), a digital camera or other device. Or they could be used to hold personal items like a pack of pocket tissues, hand sanitizers, lotion and crafting items like embroidery scissors, pins, crochet hooks, stitch markers.

The coordinating zippered coin pouches are small enough to attach to a backpack, handbag or key ring to keep track of small things like jewelry, lip balm or spare change.

These padded cases with the Puppy Dog shape appliqued to the front will happily carry your sunglasses, reading glasses or other small objects - cell phones will fit snugly inside of these, too! They have a closure made of grosgrain ribbon with a metal snap:

And some Kitty Cat cases in pastel blue and pink dots - some of them had matching sunglass cases, too.

There were a few black cat cases and coin pouches that I stitched using glow in the dark thread for the eyes and nose. They've all found their furr-ever homes already, so I'll need to stitch up a few more.

All of the cases were made using in-the-hoop machine embroidery designs from Embroidery Garden. I donate a percentage of sales of items like these Kitty Cat and Puppy Dog cases to one of our local animal shelters, Ramapo-Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc (RBARI). They have a no-kill policy and work to find homes for all kinds of animals, including feral cats, seniors, and special needs pets.
