Have you ever had an idea come to you that you just can't shake? Well I have and you're seeing it here. I love those old time tool carriers and I thought what a great idea that would be for my stitching items. It could sit right beside me on my couch and everything would be handy. Well I found them in plastic but I hated how they looked. I wanted one made of wood. I found some on Ebay but they were antiques and quite expensive so they were out. I found one down at Hobby Lobby on saturday but it was about 2 feet long....too big. By now I was beginning to feel like Goldilocks and the 3 bears. LOL
Then I came up with the idea of making one and so my story begins. I laid awake saturday night in bed with this thing going around and around in my head. I was thinking of all the different ways of making one of these and how I would go about it. I woke up Sunday morning with a plan!!!
What you see above is my new little carrier. It's 7" x 8"....just the right size. I made the long sides soft so that they can expand if I need them to. All the finishing was done by hand....including all the stitching of it together. I should of taken pictures of how I did this and I promise if I make another one....I will. It took about 4 hours work.
I am back to working on Fallen Roses.....I'm so close to the finish that I can taste it and I'm also working on a crocheted shawl. I hope whatever you are working on has not been visited by that pesty frog!!!
Blessings as always,
