So, this is the handmade item I made for my partner in the Scrappy Swap. It is a (gigantic) needle case with a little pocket for embroidery scissors.
It's not perfect - I interfaced the exterior (which I'm not showing until my partner has received it) but not the interior fabric, and I wish I had, to give it a bit more structure. Never mind, it will fulfil its function of holding needles and scissors (and I easily fitted the fat quarter of scraps I am sending inside it as well). I will send this off tomorrow.
I decided that this weekend would be less talk, more (sewing) action. I ended up doing quite a lot of quilting (both straight line and free motion), with the result that a couple of ongoing projects are much closer to completion than they were last week. Will update when I have photos.
What did you get up to this weekend? Lots of time at the sewing machine? Or was the weather too good where you are to be stuck inside?
