Hello! This week I am a little mouse tagging along in the coat pocket of my friend and mentor, Lynn, from Thimblemouse and Spouse. I stopped by to say, "Hello" at their shop, Country Crossroad, and was immediately sucked in by the new fabric from Quilting Treasures! I knew I wasn't signed up for the blog hop, but I had to make something out of the She Who Sews fabric anyway. Lynn spoke with our fearless leader, Madam Samm, who said it would it would be okay if I snuck in through the back door to show you my teensy project.

I spent the first evening on the tabs. There are four layers on these tabs, the yellow rulers, the red, the black and then the fussy-cut little dolls! I made eight, but only needed four.



Next came the panel, which I quilted and added .... can you see what I added? Yes, I added three borders, black, pin cushion and ruler, but there is more....can you see it?




 I added clear pockets! Look!




The other little thing I did was pad and cover my corkboard.....


So, in the end, it was soooo much fun! I love seeing what everyone else is posting! You all are rock stars!


Would someone please help me with photos??! I am hopeless!

  3. Great projects, Mary Pat. Your organizer is wonderful and the little details make it over the top. The yard stick holder is the perfect little extra. Great idea to cover a cork board. Thanks for the inspiration and adding to the blog hop.
    You need to sign up for more hops.

  16. All righty then...YOU need to sign up for these hops. Your creativity and sewing abilities need to be showcased and the blog hops are a great way to do that. I love this fabric, too. Your organzier is wonderful and I think your decision to use the ruler at the top and the clear pockets was a great one. Hope to see you again soon. :)

  20. Hi Mary Pat - I just saw your projects on the She Who Sews blog hop. I love what you created with my fabric collection! This sewing organizer was the perfect project for the small patch panel. And the clear pockets allowing our Handmaids™ and the other designs to shine through, great idea! I love it. Wonderful job. I hope you will visit us and see the Handmaids™ humble beginnings Mary Pat. And please check us out on FB. Thanks for sharing. ~ J. Wecker Frisch
