Selvage Sewing Caddy!


I made this little sewing caddy and finally finished it!  It is made of selvages and I love it!


Here is the back of it opened up.


I am using my classic red for the zipper in honor of my Mom.  It is her favorite color and I miss her!  She was supposed to come to Muscat this past winter but couldn't in the end.  My best friend came from St. Louis though!  I am not sure how functional this is yet.  I think the seam ripper pocket is good.  I feel the pin cushion is too small.  I have three other pockets and the capacity to put two spools of thread on.  Thanks to Susan at FlossieBlossoms for inspiring a much neater and easier way to attach the hair tie for the spools.  I just looked at my sewing caddy she sent and got the idea.  I really do appreciate it.  I need to work on my finishing skills and that is what I learned from this little project!  Yay!



Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you! I can't wait to put it to use so I can further critique it to make it even better!
