Last night I made a quick little project called a 'sun visor caddy'. I found the pattern years ago in a Homespun magazine No. 92 (Vol 12 No.1).
WARNING: The pattern has some errors for cutting instructions and general instructions were a little difficult to understand....or... maybe a was a little too focused on the tennis as I sewed. It's been a great tournament for our young Aussie tennis players at the Australian Open. Either way, I threw away the magazine and worked out the assembly myself.
DS No. 3 told me I was 'channeling my inner male' when I did that. He had a tone of pride in his voice as he said it.
This caddy attaches to the sun visor in your car.
And folds up out of the way.
Mr Stitch and I are planning a road trip at Easter. He likes driving really long distances and I like sewing while he drives. It's a win-win situation. But, the console in the car is not very conducive to the storage of scissors, threads etc.
So the scissors are safely kept in place with a press stud.
There are pockets for packets of buttons, reels of thread etc. and the split ring holds embroidery threads.
It even has a little needle case.
The Velcro straps keep it attached to the visor.
Just need to start preparing the portable projects now.
I had a finish last Friday too but haven't had time to show you. I made this sign for DS No.3's bedroom door. He is slowly setting up a little recording studio in his bedroom and I keep walking in at crucial creative moments. No, he doesn't have plans of being a rock star, just likes recording and mixing sound.
This project is from Annie Downs' book, 'A Boys Story'. The sign is reversible and as he is about to commence those last two years of high school studying for his HSC, I thought this was appropriate for the other side.
The felt stars were appliqued onto self covered buttons. Sorry, photo is a little fuzzy.
Today I am linking up with Friday Night Sew In and Finish It Up Friday. So pop over and take a look at what everyone else was doing.
