    You all inspire me... You know I have been stalking this thread, well today I saw a pincushion swap too... I gave up and designed and made myself a matching set. I hope you don't mind. It has 3 pockets, one large and two smaller and a tiny tuck space for a thimble. The ribbon is for thread. I need to fill it now!

    Kensington, that is beautiful, love that fabric you used. I just got news that my swap partner in Dublin got the sewing case I made for her.We were too late to get in the swap everyone was just in so her & I did our own swap. She just put mine in the mail so as soon as I get it I will post it.
    Keep up the beautiful work girlfriend. You did a wonderful work of art there, I must say.

    They are so fun to make, I jumped in today and made two more, and I have 4 laid out to make. They take less then 30 minutes from start to finish. I'm using them for Ladies gifts for Christmas. Nieces probably. Oh, and one will be a stocking stuffer for my daughter. I love them.

    These are just too cute. Did you say you made your own pattern? They are really creative.

    I did make my own. I looked at all of them in this swap, and a few I found online, then put the things I liked the best into one. It has four pockets, one is the shape and size for a thimble, one for needles, one for a seam ripper or small zissors, one longer for a acrylic board or buttons, and then I put in the ribbob for a slender spool of thread and the felt pages for pins. I made it a rectangle, but when I cut the end at an angle for the flap, it made a thimble pocket. I used a button and ribbon wrapped around for the closure.

    They are 12x7 over all before sewing, but when finished and trifolded they are about 6x3 1/2. I used ultra thin batting in side for padding. They are just right to throw in a purse or a suitcase and have all you need to mend or repair something as you go! I just need to get the threads, bobbins and needles for the pockets.

    I've made four since yesterday when I made that first blue set for myself. LOL. I'm going to make the pin cushions to match and give the sets for Christmas gifts.

    Do we have any swappers, living on another planet, maybe? Maybe the tracking number would help solve the mystery.

    Do you know if it's an international swap? Sometimes those can take a long time, to travel. I hope it arrives soon!
