Are you making any homemade christmas presents this year? I decided to.
Seriously…Amazon is just way easier. But hopefully the boys love their new pillowcases and pajama pants….and to be perfectly honest…I’m in too deep now. I already spent way too much time getting all the materials together. I’m in deep y’all. Like DEEP deep.
Since I have been spending some time with the ole Singer, I noticed that it would be helpful to have my threads out and easier to access. I literally could not sew another stitch until the spools were organized. All five of them. Walmart sells these little spool organizers and I picked one up for just under ten bucks.
It has legs that swing out…kickstand style…but I didn’t want them so I had to remove them with a screw driver.
I used Martha Stewart’s gold craft paint to give it a quick coat and boom…..shakalakalaka spools! That’s exactly what I said. About five times till Jeremy asked me why I was trying to beatbox.
Now it hangs over the sewing station like the crown jewels. Sorry about the quality of photo – I took these practically as the sun was going down and it had very little light….even with a tripod, it came out crazy. Hopefully Santa will bring me the light kit that I asked for (hint hint Santa…here’s the link so your elves can get it for me!) so this won’t happen again 🙂
So are you sewing anything for Christmas? Anyone making cute gifts? I wanna see what you are doing…leave a link so I can copy you shamelessly…and seriously, why didn’t anyone tell me that organizing such small insignificant things makes you have a total high?! I could seriously run a country right now!
