I had been missing my sewing machine lately. You know withdrawls. I decided that my sewing room needed a good cleaning to inspire me. I am so glad that I cleaned it. I had made the yellow purse first. It was way too small. I enlarged the pattern and made the second one. I did not have any more yellow tone fabric so used what I had. Then while cleanind I decided that I was tired of thread everywhere. I found directions for a thread bag. The one I found had a pin cushion attached. Since I had finally made the pin cushion that was in my head I altered the pattern to have just a platform that fits under the machine. Now I am really ready to get sewing.
