Another Sewing Machine Cover

Another Swap

And another sewing machine cover!!

I don’t know what happened to this week!! OK, maybe I do… Just got home from a little week away at our in-laws vacation house, I’m scrambling to get ready for a job interview (ahhhh!!!), have the kiddo and husband at home with a dog we’re pet sitting…. Oh, and the Olympics that I somehow get mesmerized by. And it’s already Wednesday and I haven’t shown you the swap project I made!!!

A while back I posted my sketches for the swap and based on the comments I ended up going with the Modern tree design. My partner (I can’t say who she is yet, since she probably hasn’t actually received it yet…) requested a sewing machine cover and/or a sewing caddy. I was also inspired by my partner’s mosaic to use a bird in the design.

I used my own tutorial for the sewing machine cover and a design for the birds that I had come up with when I first started quilting. I love these little guys, although my husband thinks they need a body… I think they have a body… hmmm….

The swap was for one main gift and a small gift. So for the small gift I used my scraps from the cover and did a quick sewing caddy! This one is meant to go over an ironing board, so I added weights on the opposite side of the pockets. With the weights it won’t slide off once you add in your scissors, etc!

Partner, I hope ya like them!!!

And if you noticed, I mentioned sewing machine cover twice up above… That’s not a misprint… I got my swap package today and it’s a sewing machine cover!!! I love it!! My partner, Crystal from So She Stitches, used my sewing machine cover tutorial and got it right on! It fits perfectly!

The whole family was ooing and ahhhhing at lunch when the box came! My son has already taken the pin cushion and was feelin’ around to see if he could also have the little fabric box..

I love swaps! I love the things I made… (hehehe) and I LOVE the things I received!!!
