Something for me...

Well for my sewing machine would be more accurate;)  I decided to take time to make a new thread catcher/pincushion/tool holder.

I have had a combination one before, but the tool holder went all across the mat so every time I sat down it was in my lap.  I had seen this one before and decided I would like to try it.  In a couple hours yesterday I had it done.  I really like the big pincushion.  Today I decided to make a new mat for my Janome 7700 to sit on, after all the work she does, she deserves something cushy right?

 It is so portable that it can jump across the room(with a little help from me) and be next to my featherweight.  But since the featherweight is so tiny, she deserves to have a mat more to her size, so I made one for her  too.


Did you notice how these accessories coordinate with my curtain under the countertop?

  1. Hi Vicki,
    That looks very handy, efficient and I love how it matches the curtain! Your featherweight looks like she is ready to go on a road trip soon in the camper . . . and maybe you are as well? I can't believe you took a break from table runners! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. You are so color coordinated! I love it. I'm not sure I could crack that out as quickly as you! Yes, I think your machines deserve some love for all the work they've been doing. Fun to see you making something for yourself!

  6. I like how you just 'whipped' it out in a matter of hours! I've thought about making one...never have...but it's the thought that counts! ;) Does your machine slide with the mat underneath?

  7. Your sewing room looks nice, with all the matchy-matchy things in it. It's fun to make new sewing machine mats and accessories. I have them in several different fabrics.

  10. Yep, great coordination. I bet it looks so great in the room. I made the same accessory a few years ago. Still so very useful!

  13. I'm needing to make a new thread catcher. Yours is so much nicer than the one I have. And prettier.

  15. Great food and great people with awesome styling and interior. Also a great event space for cheap happy hour drinks. However, the downstairs beer selection is about as standard as it can be while upstairs can be a bit more creative.

  16. I keep saying I should make one of these for my sewing space. I did manage to crochet a small basket for catching bits of yarn.
