For my birthday this year, I requested for a Janome 625E Sewist and was granted one to my delight. Such a change for me as I usually sew by hand and the first thing I made is what I call a “needle pad” which I stick my needles in when I am not using them and also a little pocket sewn to store my threader.A self – organisation idea which I modified from another craft idea I saw recently.
So on the front I’ve sewn my collection of Japanese fabric on a piece of calico cloth.
After sewing the front of the “needle-pad” with the different fabrics,I folded the fabric into half and sewed on the pocket on the inside like this
Pretty pleased with the outcome, at least I have something pretty to stick my needles in and don’t have to look as hard for my threader each time!
