It looks like you planned well to fit your needs. Love your bright colored fabric. IF I sew in the sitting room, I have a table by my chair I can lie scissors and such on.
When I was small my mom left her scissors on the sofa. Unaware, I sat down and they stuck in my outer thigh/hip area. I still have the scar. They were very long, very sharp pointed.
Great idea-I always having rolling spools of thread, scissors that want to fly somewhere and my needle always pinned to my self if not using it at the particular time.
I also pin my needle to my clothes!
Will only work if you replace items after use, anything like me you forget!
Very clever lady and such a fab idea!
Super idea Sue, I keep a small cardboard box beside me. This will be my next project, however I think I will attach a fine stretch elastic on the scissors as well. Great thought to add a large magnet for needles that is my problem when I drop one I can't find it.
A very clever idea to keep track of those pesky scissors! Love the fabric.
Looks Great and so useful.
Amazing!!! Very useful and thoughtful!!! I would think these would sell at Craft sales, We all most likely sit and sew away from our machines!!! Great Job!!! Hugs, Judy...
What a neat idea Sue.
Great idea. Is this one of the trays you can buy for laptops or lunch-on-a-tray?
I am mainly knit when watching TV and although I try to keep things like scissors, tape measure, cable needle, wool sewing needle on a tray and odd balls in a basket I have to look between the cushions and under the sofa all the time. Those things have a mind of there own if you ask me.
I looked at a laptop tray which was very slippery so I decided to make my own version. Cable needles are a problem for me too. There are probably several in the innards of our sofa!
