Good Friends

I have quite a few good friends. I feel very fortunate to be surrounded by fun, kind and loving people. I have one friend that I sew with quite a bit. She was my first sewing buddy after moving to California four years ago. She likes to make things for her friends. Now, I know what you are thinking. And you'd be right I am lucky! Let me show you the very useful items she has made for me. And may I just say one of these projects is not for the faint of heart. I think you'll know which one.

I know that little project was not an easy one and I don't think she'll be quick to make another one any time soon. But, isn't it just fabulous. I can just grab this tote when I am going to be sewing in some location other than my home or even at home, I know just where things are!
She also made me both of these other gems. Both trash collectors, one for use with my serger as a catcher and one with a pin cushion to set next to my sewing machines. I don't what I did to have such a friend but I'm very happy to have her as one. I wish for you all happy sewing with good friends all around.


  1. I need the one with the pin cushion attached. A how to make tute would be great.

  2. I think my friend decided the tote would be worth the $40 from timeless totes.It turned out not to be a simple project. http://timelesstotes.com/accessory.html
    Maybe I can get her to post the tutorial on the pincushion trash bag. There may be a pattern she used, if so I'll post a link for it after I see her this weekend.
