Look What Mommy Made!!
A blog about 4 crafty mamas trying to satisfy their crafting appetite while raising children and running a household. This will document our attempt at trying to do it all (although it will most likely never happen) and share all the mishaps that occur on the way.
Now that Christmas (the season of crafting for others) is over I get to be selfish. For a few weeks at least, then I have baby gifts to get started on. I wanted to make a few things for myself and my crafty hobbies. The bag is one I made a while back, but I used the leftover fabric to make a few new accessories.
First up is a pin cushion/ stash bag/ tool holder/ paper weight. The pattern comes from SewMamaSew's website and we've been dying to make it for months. It is the perfect caddy for knitting, sewing, and many other crafty hobbies.
Next is my own creation. I wanted a "jacket" for my sewing machine that had pockets for the necessities and allowed the handle to be held for carrying it between houses. I defined "necessities" as the plug, pedal, my bobbin ring, and my pins case. Luckily- I had bought a ton of these fabrics a few weeks back when it was all $3 a yard.
I love how it all matches!
I was inspired by a gift from my husband. He bought me a table and two chairs to put in my crafting corner. Now it is my own little workspace that I don't have to clean up everytime someone wants to eat. YEA. Good work husband.
