The last one!

I just, two minutes ago, finished the last Christmas present I'm making for this year!  There's cause for celebration and I should be jumping up and down....however.....I decided to share picture of it with you instead.

First of all, I used co-ordinating sewing themed fabric to
create a sewing machine cover and,
because I don't know the dimensions of
her machine, I just made it as a tie-on
cover.  Note the ties are made
from a measuring tape.


Then I made a Thread Catcher/Pincushion
from a really great free tutorial
found HERE.


I had some scraps of the sewing themed fabric
left over,
so I also made a little needle book, which
you can also see in the above photo.

DONE....
now it's on to wrapping!!
