A Good Husband?

I have never sewn anything before in my life, and yet I made this needle case for my wife. How much of a pain was it? I learned how to resolve almost every little disaster possible.

Brdgt (the angry, crafty girl) made one these a few weeks ago, and I though it would be a simple project. My wife has too many needles without a home, and hopefully this will help her.

The local fabric stores were not kind with their selection of upholstery weight fabrics, so I was forces to work an autumnal theme. Perhaps next time I'll find something more stylish. Posted by Picasa

Look at you! That looks great Nat, did you use the pattern from Stitch N' Bitch? You are officially crafty (on top of being a super husband, but we all knew that before).

Yes, from Stitch n' Bitch -- perhaps the only time I will ever use the book (Karen begs me to learn how to knit, but it is too quiet enough activity for me -- perhaps there should be a knitting book for people like me called "Stitch n' Snark). However, I am thinking about sewing something else (a bag for travel guides).

Did you buy some pre-wound bobbins? Did you learn to use the bobbins winding feature on the sewing machine?

I know the machine can wind bobbins, but I couldn't get it to work.
