Oh what fun it is!!!

I just purchased a new sewing machine today....sigh...I so needed one.
This is a Janome DC2010 and I really like absolutely love this machine!!!  I have been busy working on projects all day.

Here is one project.  I am going to commit to "couponing" every chance I get this year.  I really need to get organized when it comes to grocery shopping and meal planning.  Our goal is to eat out on Wednesday nights at church and then on Sunday afternoons.  That means that I'll be cooking A LOT this year.  I"ll be looking for new recipes too :)

With all of that said, I created a neat little organizer today that I hope will help me. 

I like the look of the button and ribbon closure.  You simply wrap the ribbon around the button and off you for the inside...

It has a pocket on the right side for a small notepad, a pocket in the middle for your pen that you MUST have with you when you shop.  On the left side is a pocket for coupons or other papers.  I added the triangle in the corner for a little "whimsey".

I hope you like it.  I will work on a tutorial for this in the coming weeks...stay tuned!


  1. I love this. You can keep your list and coupons together. Thanks for linking this up at Trendy Treehouse!

  2. Love it!! I think I need at least two of them. =) I am looking forward to the tutorial!
