Mail Sorter

I've paid one too many bills late, so I made this mail sorter to hang next to the fridge. It's pretty ugly and poorly sewn, but it works, so that's all I care about right now. To be honest, I was surprised my sewing machine did it-it's a really thick fabric and there is a thin layer of cardboard on the back. At some points if was through 4 layers of fabric AND the cardboard. Now that I know I can do it, I may go back and make a nicer one.

PLUS, it was my first time using the button-hole maker on my machine!

These are hanging on a light switch until I put it in it's actual home tomorrow.
