Westie & Scottie Accessories

As soon as I downloaded these in-the-hoop embroidery designs from Five Star Fonts, I knew I would eventually stitch them up in terrier fabrics. It was just a matter of time... and back in Spring 2013 I finally had the opportunity to make a few matching sets of quilted monogram checkbook covers, sunglass cases and keychain pockets in Westie and Scottie fabrics. The in-the-hoop design files for each accessory come with single letter monograms as well as blanks (for even more customizing options), in at least 2 choices of quilting patterns. 

This mini Scottie Dog embroidery design from Embroidery Boutique was another must-have for my collection and I envision stitching it on all sorts of projects. Of course, the color had to be changed to white so I can call it a Westie! 

For this first three-piece set in black and white, I used the blank monogram designs with a diamond quilting pattern and added the tiny white terrier. (This set was sold in my Etsy shop last summer.)

The sunglass case is generously sized and can double as a cell phone sleeve - my Samsung Galaxy S3 fits nicely inside with room to spare. The checkbook cover holds a check register and checks, replacing the vinyl cover from the bank. And the keychain pocket is just the right size to carry business cards, gift cards, loyalty cards, credit cards, identification or folded money. A snap closure on the back keeps everything securely inside.

This adorable Garden Westie fabric is perfect for these accessories! For this set, I used a blank embroidery design file with diamond quilting, carefully cutting and centering the Westie face instead of a monogram.

To maximize the use of the Westie design, the inside lining of the checkbook cover and sunglass case have a coordinating fabric in black with white polka dots.

The pocket keychain has a special heart shaped split key ring for added cuteness.

In 2011, I made some coin purses and gadget cases in the same Garden Westie print, but at that time, the print was a slightly lighter shade of green. Until a month or so ago, I hadn't had a chance to make new gadget cases.

I received a request through one of my shops in June for this zippered case, so I made up a few in the darker fabric - it coordinates perfectly with the three piece set above.

I like to add a short strap with a swivel clasp to each case, so it can be attached easily to a purse or bag. This one is lined with white cotton fabric and has a sweet little dog bone charm attached to the zipper pull.
In my fabric stash I had a sweet Scottie print in both pink and red colorways that just begged to be turned into something special. To change things up a little, I made the pink version with stipple quilting for the checkbook cover and sunglass case. The matching gadget case was made using Embroidery Garden's Monogram Zipper Case with a wavy quilt design, to go with the stippling on the other pieces.


For the red version of the Scottie dog print, I liked the diamond quilt pattern in black thread for the checkbook cover and matching sunglass case. The lining for both pieces is a coordinating black and white paw print fabric.


And here's the matching gadget case for the Scottie dogs in red:


I couldn't resist adding this Westies in Sweaters fabric to my collection - and it's perfect for these quilted accessory sets. Here are the sunglass case and checkbook cover, with diamond quilting stitches:
