Well this week has been a catching up and making useful things time as I have been on a little trip which took most of my energy! I went to London overnight with my daughter and two grandchildren to see my son-in-law -to -be getting an award from work as he has been ‘down there’ on a training course for 8 weeks. Here we are on our sightseeing day!
Although I had a lovely time the only energy I had left for sewing was enough to make a very small thing – a caddy to hang from under my sewing machine to keep my scissors and seam ripper always to hand!. I had been promising myself a sewing caddy for ages as they don’t take very long to make really. I used a fat quarter which had cats and kittens neatly depicted in little squares just the right size for pockets!
After heming the cat fabric I sewed it on to a plain calico background and then sewed straight lines to make separate pockets. On the top I sewed some little loops of bias binding for my tweezers etc and to the right I made a little pocket, stuffed it with left over fabric strips and used it as a pin cushion!
