Friday Night Sew In with Heidi was another successful evening of sewing! This is such a great inspiration and motivation for me
This week I wanted to make a start on my blogging friend Jantines new pattern. It's a terrific sewing folder that holds all your sewing needs and you can take anywhere with you.
The above picture is about half way through the nights sewing...pockets made, outside cover pieced together and applique flowers ready to go...
And this is it finished!!! I just love it. It ends up about 10 x 12 inches (closed) and holds everything!!!
Inside... there are heaps and heaps of pockets (21 actually!!)... for pens, patterns, scissors, cotton reels, needles, etc. The pincushion can be attached and removed easily and there's a clever little idea that stops the needles going right through, if you've got the folder on your lap. Also a nifty little ring for your embroidery threads.
The only thing I haven't finished on my folder, is there is a zip that goes all the way around the outside edge, so it closes up perfectly. The zips on my shopping list and then it will be totally finished.
I am totally wrapped with my new folder and the instructions were very, very clever and easy to understand. I had no problem putting it together. (Well done Jantine!!! - it's awesome!!!)
Thanks so much to Heidi for hosting the FNSI again.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
