Lazy but productive weekend

I love lazy weekends. This weekend was quiet, there was no shopping to do, no nephew to look after, just washing and the usual housework. So, I crammed all the housework in on Saturday morning and spent the rest of the weekend sewing. I made a make up bag and tissue holder for my Mum to give to her friend, I tried my hand at a couple of fabric storage boxes (they came out really terrible so need to find a new pattern and strong interfacing) and as my sewing machine would now be on show, I wanted to make a new cover as the one that it came with was a bit old fashioned. So in true MrsShilts style I made a cover out of remnants I’ve been keeping and I really like it.

I had to insert a little piece into the side as it fit when I had finished sewing it together but I think it looks ok. I really like it and I think its quite in-keeping with all my other makes..

 I’m visiting Baby Harry tomorrow to give him his quilt I made so I hope they like it
