With Christmas fast approaching, I couldn't resist making a festive version of my Sofa Sewing Station Pattern, and I wanted to tell you all about it.
Have you ever been sat on the sofa stitching, and found that you're precariously balancing your pins, needles and notions on the arm of the sofa, only to knock them off, or they all fall down the side of the sofa? It's happened to me many times and is very frustrating, especially when pins disappear only to be found by annoyed family members days or weeks later!
I found a solution to this problem by designing the Sofa Sewing Station pattern. It fits neatly over the arm of the chair and has multiple pockets to keep the notions organised and close to hand. The nice thing is, you can decide how many pockets you want to create.
You could have up to six pockets if you wanted. It also has a built in pin cushion, so you can keep your needles and pins close to hand, and not lose them down the side of the sofa ever again!
For this Christmas version I've added some pretty red and white pom-pom trim to the pockets for an extra festive feel, and I've used the Christmas in the City fabric collection, gifted to me by Art Gallery Fabrics. I love the fusion of traditional meets modern with the retro decorations and pink blender print.
This pattern is suitable for confident beginners and would make a wonderful Christmas gift for any sewing lover. It's available now as a digital download, straight to your inbox. Stitching in front of the TV will be a breeze from now on!
