Ok, here is my Pinkeep Entry at MJ's


Don't laugh now! But it is really just who I am.....practical, Repurposing George!!


I've made another one. This one has a thimble holder and a seam ripper pocket. The pockers are made from sleeve ribbing, so they snug up against what you put in them. The thimble pocket is made so you can insert your thimbled finger in and it will hold it while you pull your finger out. And you can stick your finger in the thimble and pull it out with the thimble on your finger! This one is made from a pretty purple sweater and then some crazy grey/mauve/lavender wool for the flower. Gosh, these are really easy and fun to make!

Oh, I added a seam ripper pocket to my MJ's entry to match the flower. I have been using it and it is sooooo functional and keeps all of my little sewing tools together and handy!! Hmmm....maybe I should call it the "Handy Can"

LOL.......

It is perfect in my eyes...I love the fancy schmancy pin keeps as well. But there is just something to be said about using repurposed items and the practicality of the pinkeep itself. Love it!

Final thoughts...
