NEW SEWING SET!
December 10, 2012 by Teje
Hello hello hello! I wish you good week and thank you for stopping by! Thank you also for your lovely, sweet comments! Welcome new followers – hope to see you often! Sunday is Sewing day or what! Box and bowl theme continues and I made new sewing set.
This fabric has been waiting to become something special = something I can have somewhere to see often. I thought it’s perfect for a oval storage box. What to put in the box? Sewing things – what else? I used to use a big ceramic bowl for some sewing things, to have them next to tv or outside in summer time. I think this fabric bowl is much better for that! Because I like matching things, sets, outfits with similar colours, I thought I should make also a needle book to match.
… and the needle book became a needle case. I needed also small pincushion for pins so better ‘2 in 1’!
This looked also comfy armchair before I add pins and needles. Idea for a doll-house! I was looking for buttons (too long time for a small detail but it has to be the right one) but I didn’t like to add it under the clock to ‘brake’ the lovely cover, so I made the closing like this.
Sun is playing with us today! One moment it’s rainy and stormy and then sunshine. I had prepared photographing inside but then it looked so nice outside, that we went out with Nero.
Few photos we managed to take before it started to rain again …
For the binding I was thinking white fabric. Then I tried orange-red with white. Then red with turquoise and pink. But they didn’t look right … I think I didn’t want to pick the red colour for main role. So when I last tried this stripy one (even I thought it can’t suit well because of the green and yellow) it looked the best choise. I’m happy with that – and it has white which is always important!
Almost with all the things I sew, I start to make them for myself, even I’m thinking they could go to my shop. Then if they look good and I’m happy with the result, I put them to my etsy shop TEJESARITA. So even I really thought this sewing set is going to stay at home, I’m more than happy to sell it or make an other one, if you would like to have one!
This needle case was a little bit challenge because it is so little. Lucky me to have small fingers (I think I have small hands?). I have still some custom orders to make before Christmas and I’m waiting from the postman few fabrics for them. That’s why I had time to make something out of my list. So I guess I shall go to check the postbox on the square of our village and hope to find a letter from Cindy and ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’! This ‘clock’ fabric is also from ‘Fluffy Sheep Quilting’! Lining is made with ikea’s fabric with written numbers.
Thanks again for reading my sewing post and I hope you like this sewing set with a new idea! Hope to see you soon!
