Now my sewing area may finally be tidy...

well, dreams are free - right?!?

Maybe not, but the pillowcase I used to make this desk tidy thing was!

I will try and put a tutorial up for this tomorrow, I'm just too tired at the moment and the lighting is TERRIBLE for photo taking. Still, I leave you with a photograph I've just taken at my first attempt! I'm quite pleased with the results, now all I need to do is throw the odd threads and fabric in here instead of on the floor!!! ;)

And, yes I am back to using the old brother. I had huge problems today with the tension on my old bernina, I was about ready to throw the darn thing! grrrrr! I think I need a new sewing machine, just have to convince the husband of it's importance...

The sewing tidy came about as an idea that was formed over coffee with Lianne - Thanks Lianne, is this what you were looking for?

Wow - what a great idea! My hubby is making me a sewing table so I might need to steal your amazing idea!

Wow just what I need hubby gets so annoyed when I throw thread, scraps of fabric on the floor. LOL Actually he never says a word but I can see the look! LOL Thanks for all the wonderful ideas! Huggs Marion

very clever idea!

A HiDef Flat screen TV would be a more reasonable purchase than a new sewing machine - I mean you already own two sewing machines!

What a sensational idea. Everytime I sew, I manage to spread bits of fabric and thread all over the house! Look forward to seeing the tutorial.

Good luck with negotiating that new sewing machine!!

That is a brilliant idea. Looks like you have been busy this summer making fun things whilst I was away!
