I have made a few non quilt things lately, and it was fun sewing and stitching something else. The first is a Bionic Gear Bag, a pattern I bought off of Craftsy. There is another similar type bag available, and apparently (most certainly) there is disagreement between the two designers. Well, ignorance is bliss, and when I purchased my pattern I had no knowledge about this. Either way, I made the Bionic Gear Bag, and I think it is genius. There are pockets, zippers, and it is just fun.
I have a friend headed to a quilt retreat and I think this will be something she can use.
I also made a needle case. I'm not sure why I thought I needed this, maybe because my needles are all in a metal box and I dig through every time I need a new one. And the needles that I am using, I never have any memory of what size they are, so hopefully this will help,
There are several pages and sections to sort your various hand and machine needles, and a two plastic pockets to hold various items.
And, I really did need some pincushions, so I made a little wool pincushion, and I even tried a little embroidery on it. Not something to brag about, but I do like it.
I enjoyed making these projects, maybe it was their usefulness, or just making a project that I could start and finish in a reasonable time was rewarding.
Thanks for joining me, I appreciate your company.
