Hence, my topic for today. Sewing helpers that can make your sewing fun and easy, no matter the space, 'cause how many of us really just work in one spot. Our sewing/craft tends to travel around with us.
The Sewing Chatelaine:
I looked at many pins on Pinterest and even found a few patterns for sale. There were different advantages to each one and I decided I'd try my hand at making my own. Not once, but twice (one was for my mom). Maybe, in the future I'll try my hand at a tutorial.
Triangular Thread Catcher:
My floor and shirt are usually covered in strings by the time I stop sewing a project. These are so simple and adorable to make and yes another Pinterest find. Here is a tutorial: http://needlingthings.blogspot.com/2011/08/triangular-ort-thread-catcher.html?m=1
Pincushion Thread Catcher Organizer:
This one I just whipped up recently, thanks to Pinterest. I liked the idea of having certain things on hand. I also like the bigger thread catcher, because I can throw fabric scraps in it as well.It was very easy to whip up and Sew Mama Sew did a wonderful tutorial that is easy to follow. Here is her tutorial: http://
The Thimble Pip:
These are such fun to make and can be used for an assortment of ideas. My kids are already asking me to make them for them. :-) I plan to use mine to keep my thimble and just maybe I'll keep up with where it is. Another Pinterest find and here is the tutorial: http://madquilter.blogspot.de/2011/07/thimble-pip-tutorial-great-for-stitch.html?m=1
Hope these tutorials will help and inspire you as well. Enjoy!
