Noodlehead   urban home goods swap sewing quilting embroidery

Well, I couldn’t resist joining in the this round of the Urban Home Goods swap hosted by Heather and Kerri.  It’s been kind of fun figuring out what to make for someone I don’t even know.  But I have to admit that it’s a lot of pressure, there’s so many cute things popping up in the flickr group

Here’s the main item for my partner: a sewing machine cover!

This was fun to put together, and I loved thinking about what kind of embroidery I would put on it.  I thought a scissors seemed appropriate, although I did want to try some kind of fun quote, but couldn’t settle on anything.

Hopefully it fits her machine, if not, it’ll be a nice table runner with some extra ties!

    I love this! I have been watching some of these flickr swap groups and everything is so well made and thoughtful. I am not sure how to join in on a swap, but they sure are full of inspiring projects!

    I was just looking at that transistor radio fabric yesterday and thinking how many cool things you could do with it. This looks great!

  10. girlforallseasons 03.01.2011 at 11:51 am #

    Oh wow. This is so cool. If it isn’t for me, I may have to beg you to make one for me. I love the colors, the embroidery, the fabric choices. Very nicely done.

  11. Alecia 03.01.2011 at 11:55 am #

    I absolutely adore this! And now I know what to do with my transistors! (Well, maybe I should wait a week or two to make sure that isn’t making it’s way to my house, haha). So fun!

    Very cool use of the Ruby Star prints, and I am loving the “cut here” lines.

  38. Spun Right Round 03.03.2011 at 10:56 am #

    Amazing! Super talented, your swap partner is so lucky!!!

  39. midnight hysteria 03.03.2011 at 6:30 pm #

    darling, darling, darling … awesome fabric choices …. now a question: what linen did you use …. darlene

  40. erica 03.04.2011 at 10:23 am #

    Anna! This is too cute! I love the little scissors paired with that great radio print.
    I love it, love it, love it!

  41. Gabrielle 03.04.2011 at 2:08 pm #

    I love those radios. I am hording some for a top secret project :) Great job on the embroidered pair of scissors. I love the combination of the ruby star rising print with the linen. So pretty

  42. jayayceeblog 03.05.2011 at 6:10 pm #

    It’s absolutely darling. What a nice gift to get. My mom made me a reversible sewing machine cover with appliques on it over 30 years ago for my Bernina and I still use it and cherish it. Your embroidered scissors are wonderful!

  43. sewkatiedid 03.12.2011 at 1:44 pm #

    Super cute. I just made one for a friend and now need to get one going for my poor naked machine.
