I must confess...

My first finish wasn't on my list. But last week I changed priorities and started to make a new beginnings sewing kit so I can help someone in Australia.
In my opion it's a wonderful idea from the gum tree designers!

A few years ago my things were stolen on the last day of the holiday. It's always awfull when something like that happens but the worst thing to me was the fact that my bag contained a patchwork top and my sewing things. I could handle the laptop, the holidaypictures that were lost, favorite clothes but my patchworkthings... that was the most difficult.
I guess this is why I had so much joy and pleasure in designing and making this sewing kit, the feeling that you can make someone happy.


I wanted to make something special and something that most people would like.

I proudly present : Felix the sewing caddy (or catty?)








And after sending this one to Jenny I will behave better and go on with my UFO's.

What a cute 'catty'. I'm sure this will brighten up and be a welcome comfort to someone affected by the floods. I am taking a brief break from UFOing as I too am in the middle of making sewing kits for the same appeal. Good luck with your finishes.
