A while back, I some how stumbled on Amy DeCesare's blog, Amy Made That...by eamylove.
She was making some wonderful Zakka Sewing Kits from the book Zakka Style, a book I've been wanting and finally got. But I haven't had time to make anything from it. Amy's sewing kits were so beautiful and well priced (I told her she doesn't charge enough!), I decided to just buy one from her. I needed some immediate gratification.
She asked what kind of fabric I wanted, and I told her to just pick for me, because I love her style. Honestly, I love about everything she does. She had just gotten some of this fabric an linen in, so she used that for mine. It's beautiful, isn't it?
Inside is this little pincushion, and there are some pockets on the flap. I decided I'm going to use this for all my needles and pins for my Sue Spargo BOM project I'm about to start. Sue has lots of specific needles she recommends. So, I'm keeping all the needle packages for that project in this sewing kit. I'll keep the the packages in the flap, and when I have a needle going, I'll keep it in the pincushion. I am loving it.
And Amy is so sweet, she also threw in this matching keychain. I love that, too! This weekend, Papa Pea replaced all the doorknobs to the exterior doors in the house, so I have new house keys. I think it's time for a new keychain to go with them. Love it.
I'm really impressed with the quality of Amy's work. She has a nice Etsy shop if you are interested in her stuff.
Many thanks, Amy, for making me a wonderful sewing kit! I love it!
We had freezing rain all night last night, so school was called off today. It's supposed to be up to 50 degrees here later this week, then back down to 18 degrees. Weird January weather. Glad we got in a little cross country skiing finally this weekend. Hope we get some more snow sometime this winter so we can ski some more.
Until next time,
