August 28, 2012This IS Your Granny’s Crafting! Sewing Caddy Craft-along Edition
By Betty Crafter
I think this little sewing caddy is darn cute. So darn cute, in fact, that I am going to make it, right here with all my friends at No Pattern Required, bit by bit so you can follow along and make one too if you so desire! Can’t you just imagine this sweet little lady hanging out by your sewing machine, cheerfully holding your pattern, measuring tape, scissors, etc so they are always helpfully at hand yet not in the way? Let’s do it! If you’re interested, here’s what you’ll need to have when we start crafting 2 weeks from today:
Pencil, ruler, paper for patterns, scissors, scalloping shears, straight pins, hole punch.
Felt – Emerald green for background 7 1/4″ x 37 1/2″; bright pink for backing 7 5/8″ x 38″; large and small pieces of emerald green, dark green, chartreuse, bright and light pink, red, light and bright orange, gold, flesh color, brown; White sewing thread; Cardboard disk 4 3/8″ diameter; Scrap of heavy white paper; red felt tipped marker; rouge; brass curtain ring 1 1/4″ diameter; all purpose glue.
