Blogger London Purple has a wonderful tutorial on making your own Fabric Mail Sorter. I have been needing something like this for a while, and jumped at the opportunity to make it.
I modified the pattern slightly (as always ), but not in any meaningful way. I simply removed the bulk from some of the pieces to make the sewing up easier on my very old machine. If you need to know how I did this, comment, and I will reply.
If you have been keeping up with this blog, you can see that the same fabric has been used in the past several posts. This is an attempt to visually unify my craft area. I will show you all the outcome when it is finished.
