These were sewn and unpicked and jiggled and wriggled to within an inch of their life. The only thing that saved them from being tossed in the bin was the little pictures that I really love, so I struggled on through. The problem , apart from me being too cocky was probably the linen. It is beautiful but such a loose weave just gave it a bit too much give.
I was initially unsure of these little stitchies on the front. I wasn't sure they would look offset. I thought they might just look like I couldn't sew straight so thanks to Muralimanohar whose comment made me think I was on the right track. This little offset thing could turn into a new obsession.
If you want to see the Rolls Royce of fabric containers get on over to Moogsmum- hers are great and I bet she didn't swear at them either.
I had a recent visitor to whom I quite excitedly explained these little buckets and my plan to reorganise the sewing room. Now, I did warn her before entering that the room may be a little untidy.............................. her reaction was more akin to, lets say, witnessing a nuclear explosion. Even after we left the room she couldn't stop talking about it - I didn't think it was that bad.
So I have decided to deal with it !!! that's right , now you all know. I will not start a new project, in fact I will not blog again until I have done something about this room.
