This is by far my favourite week, even if I was sewing 24/7 I do not think I would be able to finish everything in this category. From the start I knew I wanted to make multiple items, and the more that was posted in the Facebook group the more I wanted to make.

Pattern weights are so good to have. I have previously used big rocks, but they make so much noise, I kept on scaring my dog half to death because I kept dropping them and stuff. I will actually post a tutorial on that soon, so stay updated.
I came across this tutorial in the Facebook group and knew this was something I truly needed. I needed a pouch for my clips. The first I made however was so big, so that one is being repurposed, currently housing my overlock threads. I love the second one I made, it is a lot better. The size is perfect and I also added interfacing so it is a lot stiffer. For the second one I cut out four pieces of fabric which were 15 x 25 cm (6″ x 10″). The boxed corners I cut off 10 cm across.
Rotary Cutter Pouch
This was a fun one. I had an hour or so on Saturday so I made this pouch. I got my Fiskars Rotary Cutters for Christmas and I really did not like them just laying around. Until now I had tried keeping them in the original packaging, but they kept slipping out. I followed this simple tutorial. The measurements I used was 21 x 23 cm (8″ x 9″). On one of the short sides I made circle corners about 2 x 2 cm ( 1″ x 1″). I love how this turned out, and I think I have to make one for my scissors too!
Fabric Baskets – Thread Holder
I was so unsure of what I wanted to make for my last project. I could hardly decided, but I ended up making something for my threads. They had been stored in a plastic box and it was a mess. The threads lot loose and ended up being all knotty (thats a word right?). So I looked through my stash and ended up paring this beautiful black and white paisley pattern with a bright pink. I love how they work together! Following this tutorial I made two, which fit all my threads luckily! I cut out a 34 x 34 cm (13″ x 13″) square of both fabrics and interfacing, folded them in four and cut the corner 10 x 10 cm (4″ x 4″) off. I decided to to a pink stitch around the top and then I ended up actually folding the top down, just to make it a bit more sturdy.
So as I mentioned there is still a lot more I want to make. The reason I ended up not doing these things is because I was missing some items. On my to do list is to make small pouches for my PRYM plastic snaps with a piece of plastic in front so I can see all the colours I have. I also want to make this sewing case for when I am bringing my sewing stuff to go and this craft bag to put my stuff in. I am also going to make a super skinny thread catcher for my overlock. Another project I am thinking maybe a high of only 2 cm so that it can rest a bit under my machine, but we will see. I am excited to make my sewing room more organised and sewing easier.
