She Who Sews-4 Sewing Room


I was so anxious to get in on this hop when I saw it announced over at Sew We Quilt.  It seems so long ago now!!  Since this is a new line of fabric, my friend and I had to send away for it. We bought ours from Hancocks; who were so very good at sending things out quickly. 

Huge thank yous go out to Madame Samm and Carla for organizing and cheering this hop. Our sponsors are always a huge and most generous part of this also.

Now my project this time will need some explaining; I'm afraid because it is a bit different. So; here we go. I bought the panel that was out for this line and came up with a type of wall hanging that I could use for my sewing room and include my lady friends that I sew with.  It has each one of their names on a pocket where I can put items for each of them. For example; if they leave something behind; in her pocket it goes and won't get misplaced. Or if I have something for one of them...it is there for next week.

This was a fun piece to do as I got together with one of my sewing buddies as she was making hers.
Connie from Shepody Mountain Crafter who is on the list today. So; let's see this project and maybe you will get the drift.

Each panel is stitched on to a quilted background..with a large opening as a pocket.  The buttons on the outside corners hold their name. The hanging sleeve is a row of paper dolls holding hands...and it is hung with a measuring tape.  The top right hand corner has a message saying...you got mail.

And you can see; we have room for a guest or new buddy.....lol.
There is my pocket up there in the corner....Rose below....
Here you can see Judy on the bike...Connie beside her and we have Marla in the bottom right.

These ladies are getting cold out here...lol. I was all over the yard taking pictures trying to get the best view of this.
They will hang on the door of my sewing room where the ladies can admire them each time they are in.hahaha!!!       

I think you have the idea...right?? lol.  Please take time to visit everyone on the list today and days ahead. It will be a fun hop for all.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy!!!!!

  17. Marjorie what a simply wonderful idea! My monthly group is constantly calling around saying "did I leave 5 small blocks at your house?" or "I'm missing my little blue scissors - could they be there?" This is ideal for all those "found" items! blessings, marlene

    You know, I may need to do something like for our meeting place as someone is always going off without something they need.

  50. Great idea Marjorie and your work is beautiful as usual!!

  51. Wonderful organizational idea! I just read a blog where a quilter had to go buy a new rotary cutter because she left hers at her mom's house. If someone left hers at your house, you'd know where it was - it would be in her pocket in your organizer. I like that idea. You always create the best-est projects. Thanks for participating again.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Now if that isn't the cutest and cleverest idea!! The fabric worked so well for your pocket hanger and adding names was perfect. I really need to have something just like this for my kids. It gives me some great guidelines to work from.
