The end is nigh!!!!

Phewwwww, the end is really nigh!!!  The situation on Sunday was that the bags were finished.  Twenty 'sets' of Roly Poly Tat Bags with matching Poke Proof Pouches.  When I started making these some years ago I did wonder whether to sell them as sets or as individual items.  I'm glad I went with the latter as it gives a lot more choice.

Oddly it seems as if the pouches are more popular than the bags which I didn't expect.  I'm going to make a few more of the pouches over the next few days - after I've photographed, cropped the photos, re-sized and listed these.

Also I've bought some spanking new ziplock bags for each item and along with new inserts they'll make wonderful gifts.  I've NOT made the bobbin holders this time as they are SO fiddly and time consuming.  Also research showed that not many people wanted them.  BUT I am going to make some 'six' bobbin holders too.  I'm hoping to get all these things listed by the weekend - keep your fingers crossed that this actually happens!!!

I'm feeling 'sewn out' now - I've spent hours and hours making these and put such a lot of pressure on myself to get them finished.  Why?  Well I think it's cause I'm stark staring BONKERS!!

  1. That's a lot of sewing! I noticed the coffee/tea mug alongside the machine; in my case it used to be a bottle or three of sherry for the whole month of October back in the days when I had to sew ballet costumes!Granddaughter is now dancing with a professional company, and someone ELSE makes all the costumes... :)

  4. Oh, you are tempting me with that lovely blue set! I love the Roly Poly Bags. They are perfect for my purse! I don't have a Poke Proof Pouch yet. Since I see both in a fabric I love... well, let's just say I may have to keep working so that I can afford my tatting habit! ; )

  9. You have been busy. Hopefully there are some "guy friendly" colour choices. I wouldn't mind a couple more pouches but I don't want them all flowery and stuff. The multicoloured check one is kinda cool...
