Yesterday afternoon , I made a small drawstring bag with batting . My hubby thought it is for holding a cell phone, but it is not. It is quite small, only measuring 5 " x 2.75 ".
I made this small bag for holding my thread clipper. The dark blue fabric is medium weight linen cotton blend . The inner lining fabric is white and dark green gingham check flannel. I simply used some different colour cotton fabric to cut out a little house pattern for the machine applique` . The applique` turned out quite cute. I love this little house on the green ground with cloud above !
I have been using this thread clipper for more than 20 years ! This 4 inches long thread clipper was imported from China . It is a bit rusty now, but the blades of this handy tool are still very sharp. I used to do some stitching work whenever I have long distance travelling. Now with this little bag, I can always keep my thread clipper as well as other small sewing notions such as seam ripper and small scissor inside my handbag for convinence. :)
