"Sew Tidy" File Folder...

Hi folks...I'm not exactly feeling chirpy chirpy cheep cheep this morning...suffering a little bit after a hectic 5 workshop weekend at The Papeterie Retreat...by the time I arrived home last night I could have fallen asleep on a clothes line but I'm sure I'll survive with a little bit of TLC...cubbyhole style. I can't tell you how much fun we had with the 30 lovely crafty folks who came along to join me and my lovely buddies Debbi Charlotte and Erika for some crafty playtime. With my little home-from-home set up on Friday afternoon...

all I needed were some lovely crafty folks to keep me company...
I love this photo of them all in concentration mode...lost in their own little creative world...
and before you know the project is beginning to take shape with piles of accompanying debris...
and this is what we made...a Sew Tidy File Folder...us crafters are always on the lookout for storage ideas and this would be ideal for storing stamps...embossing folders etc...




I usually leave all the Retreat Projects at The Papeterie but not this one...this is MINE... for my ever growing collection of the 2013 Timmie Stamps from Stampers Anonymous...
First workshop done and after a quick tidy up and cuppa...time to move on to Workshop No 2 which I'll be sharing tomorrow.
Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath, not surprised you are tired after 5 classes on the back of the NEC too! Your folder looks like a wonderful way to store your Timmy stamps - a very practical and beautiful make. Hugs, Anne x

I would have loved to sit in on this class too Kath. Easy day today? Had a ball.

One of these would be just perfect for storing all the stitching patterns I cut out of magazines!

Love the folder, infact I love all the ideas you come up with....one talented lady...just a pity you don't demo at Ally Pally.

I'm not surprised you decided to keep your own sample - brilliant. I love the colours you used too & kraft is so so versatile.
Take care & rest a bit now......

I love all thing haberdashery and I love this folder Kath. If only I didn't live so far away I could join in the fun. Ah well, I'll have to be a distant admirer! X

What a fab folder you made Kath....I wish I lived nearer...I would have loved to join in with the fun. I also wish you could be at Ally Pally but you really need to put those feet up for 5 minutes and have a well deserved rest x

This is such a clever idea and I love the design. As I was looking at it, the idea for a card flashed across my mind. Thanks for all your inspiration!
