There is a pouch to hold them all, along with a pincushion, a needle keeper, a scissors keeper, and last but not least a thimble keeper. For those of you that don't hand sew I'll bet that you will come up with a way to transform the swarm into handy items for machine sewing. Here is a picture of the swarm put into the pouch.
I've also completed the mice but will share them with you on another post. I'm trying to keep them somewhat a secret from my sister. She has a birthday next month and loves meeses. I'm hoping to do a bag with paper pieced mice to go along with the muddle of mice. The thing is I've never given her a birthday present so this like a one time lifetime present.
I also want to do a bag with bees for myself to go with the swarm. I've also designed the gang for ladybugs. What are a bunch of ladybugs called? Need to come up with something. Oh well as long as I keep having fun who cares!!!!
Let's start the tutorials with the pincushion:
He is about 3 1/2" long finished. Click on the top view picture to get to the free PDF file.
Now for the needle keeper:
Right below is the needle keeper closed. Click on it to get to the free PDF file. To the right of that is the inside with great wool felt I found at my lqs. It beats the yucky stuff from the craft stores. Below that is a picture showing the pockets on the inside.
I'll be back in a few to give you more PDF's for the rest of the Swarm.
Swarming is fun!!!
