Finish Friday……

surprisingly I managed to make a few things this week.

Remember when my friend Susan sent me all those patterns… well I finally made one!!!…this was the Simplicity 2396. I can tell you it has been a long time since I worked with those brown paper patterns…can't say I miss them !

I had this apple fabric for a while and finally decided to turn it into a bag….dada!

Inside of the bag is simple…just one little pocket with snap.

Tomorrow our niece is having her 7th birthday and since she loves to help me in the garden…I decided to make her her own garden tote ( filled with tools & gloves).

The tote is made from plastic tablecloth fabric that you buy off the roll. I saw the blue polka dots and knew right away I had to have it.

Keeping in the polka dot mood…I finally managed to make me the round Thread catcher in red polka dot fabric…it matched my Sewing tote and looks adorable on our coffee table!…no more threads on the floor !…OK, less threads on the floor!

That’s it for this weeks finishes…I still haven't made my Pincushion but does picking out the patterns & fabric count??

Hope you have a lovely weekend…the sun is shining and tomorrow my Hubby wants to got to Ikea for more shelves for the basement …Yepeee! Wonder what else I will find ??
