I've had two days to myself as Noel, Austin and Nelson went camping and Mitchell was with his Nana. So how did I fill in my time? Sew, of course!
Maria sent me some scraps from the sewing machine mat and thread catcher that she made me for the Santa Sack Swap. I put them to use and made a matching sewing machine cover, something I've been wanting to do for a while. I used the pattern from Australian Homespun (Volume 11, No. 11).
As there were owls on the main fabric, I decided to use the owl buttons I won from Incomparable Buttons.
I also made a little pin cushion to match. I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. This is my first time of making and using piping.
Something else I've been working on is the sewing case from Some Kind of Wonderful. All the piecing and stitchery has been done.
Now to put it together.
