GPS Bag and Thread Catchers
My hubby and I went to Eureka Springs yesterday and it was a pleasant trip in spite of the rain all day long. We took this little bag--it holds his GPS--he enjoyed playing with it and I enjoyed my quilt magazines.
We ate at the Bavarian--a German Restaurant--and it was very nice. So were the prices!
I made this bag manly looking because he likes to hide it when we get out of the car.
Below are some thread catchers I made. I got the instructions on some one's Blog I think. I have made a ton of these. I made one each for each of the girls in the embroidery class I was teaching.
I like to have one of these close to my machine when I am sewing. It makes for less of a mess--you know-- not so many threads throughout the carpet in house.
I'm particularly fond of the patriotic one here.
It requires eight strips of material, some machine sewing, and quite a bit of hand sewing--which I enjoy.
I found the link I got it off of here. It's a very nice tutorial.
