I sew with Twine

Good morning Bloglanders

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  We have wonderful weather - not hot, not cold and tomorrow is Heritage Day in Sunny SA - our proclaimed "braai" day.  All of us will be outside enjoying the beautiful weather, family, friends and a good old "braai". (= barbecue)

For today's project I started out with something entirely different and then got round to doing this:

It's a teeny, weeny sewing pouch. (measures less than 2 x 3) I always have a needle and thread on hand so I decided I can just as well pretty my goodies up.  You will always see me on a camping trip mending something for someone - from flip flops to pants and I even have a picture of Chandre's dad at her sister's wedding - me sewing on the button of the "father of the bride's" shirt before he could walk her down the aisle! Don't believe me?? I've got the proof:

And a peek inside:

And this is where my inspiration came from:

I have ordered heat transfer from Silhouette and when it arrives, I plan to do mini sewing kits for my BBF's for Christmas. Even the sentiment is ready: "Thank you SEW much for being my Friend". Of course I'll show once it's done - I know you can't wait to see.

I'm hopping over to The Twinery to enter my mini sewing kit. Want to join in the fun?? Just click here. Thanks for looking at my blog today and please come back to play as I have lots more to share right here. Have a Marvellous Monday!
