Voilá!

How do you like my new sewing tool caddy? I’m indulging in a little sewing for myself while visiting my sister over Thanksgiving. This one was made from the pattern Travel Case by p3designs.com.

I need to find a fabulous button to go on the front. The loop was made from an elastic band made for a ponytail.

I stitched inside the pink lines of the medallions to give the cover flap a bit of texture:

The pattern calls for three pockets but I added a fourth one so my caddy would hold more tools:

These tools stay at my sister’s home because I do plenty of sewing while I am here on extended visits. I’ll take the caddy home empty and fill it up with tools from my sewing room.

The DH and I are here for a few more days, during which time I hope to get a bit more sewing in. Not now, though. Now it’s time for the best part of Thanksgiving: leftovers!

    I would love for all your blog readers to know how fun it is to have you visit and what a pleasure it is to watch how much you enjoy all the processes that result in the beautiful things you make. Especially fun is that we often listen to music we liked going back five decades or more while you work. Very, very fun times!

    It’s beautiful, Dawn! I was just thinking this afternoon that perhaps when you get back we could go visit at least a couple of the button shops there are in Portland. That is if you don’t find the perfect button in Atlanta!

      Thank you, Colleen! I didn’t find the perfect button but I did find one that looks pretty cute. Pictures coming soon. But hey, let’s still get together when I get back!
