Making a Start

The thread catcher was a great little introductions to the year’s stitching – nice and quick and easy. It took under an hour, which including unpacking the sewing machine and all my bits and bobs that had been packed away for Christmas and deciding what fabric to use.
 
 
 
The Parisian fabric fitted the bill nicely, and it is already in use by my machine.
 
I’ve made a couple of the shoe bags as gifts and I’m looking forward to making one for myself.
 
Cheers

Love your fabric! I must look for it here. I work at a French Immersion School and my principal would love a shoe bag from that fabric. Oh I must find it now!
