We have a number of family birthdays in September - lots of gifts to make. I've managed to finish one today - almost 10 days early! Unheard of for me! I bought the Red Riding Hood linen FQ on ebay some time ago and hadn't cut into it. Are you like me.... I hate cutting into a special fabric, paper or card, but then just the right project comes along. It was time to use Red Riding Hood! My niece has started sewing and I made these two bits and bobs tubs for her sewing table. I've made quite a few now and find them really useful. And I've added a small purse which I found on Rashida's Sew Timeless blog. Her tutorial is excellent! I'm going to add some small sewing essentials such as scissors, needles and pins. I love the way it folds up to keep things safe. And I even managed to add the snap fastening - with only a little cursing! I've ruined a number of projects trying to fix these things in the past.


  1. Adorable! That fabric is fun, too, Ann; love that sewing purse!

  2. The sewing purse really does fold up small and flat. I have just used one of the small white crochet flowers (see if you can spot it on my post)from your whimsie jar swap. Sometimes its good to use things from your favourite stash as I think it gives more meaning to the item being made. Hugs Mrs A.

  3. They are so adorable, Ann. :) Great job!!!

  4. I love the sewing purse! The fabric you used is lovely, wonderful job!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to comment - its hugely appreciated. Ann :o)
