I end up with a lot of unfinished projects!
I was so tired the night before last that I wasted the night just browsing the internet. This activity always leads to being inspired by talented people!
The next day I couldn't get this out of my head and so during a 2 hour lunch break, I drove home and started a messenger bag with this stencil design. You can see the tuturial for a pouch and link for the converse shoe stencil here.
A few days ago I was browsing Japanese sites (again) and craved my own little pouch. I didn't have the Japanese craft book and so had to create my own pattern. I am amazed my measurements worked out the first time!
The above pouch is still waiting for the lining. I have cut out half and it's sitting on it.
The Japanese site browsing also lead to the start of this pouch! I used the pattern I made for the previous pouch to make this one.
I love the cute little tail out the back! I am hopefully hand stitching in the zipper today.
I have to stitch some toes onto his paws, which is going to be fiddly because they are so small.
Yes!! The parade of unfinished projects hasn't stopped yet! This is a handbag I have made using a pattern I created myself! My mum called the fabric I used 'Burlap'. I haven't the foggiest idea. It was a scrap I found in a op shop. Its lined with the fabric the flower is made from. It has a magnetic snap and boy is it a strong one. I would love to know how to take the excess power away from magnetic snaps.
While I was making my bag flower, I couldn't stop and made some more out of scraps.
So many unfinished projects made while I was making the swaps! Well, I had to have breaks! They are all close to being finished. Except for the messenger bag I started yesterday at lunch.
Here's a finished swap I have sent off. She has it now so I can show it off.
She said she loves the colour green and earthly things. She also loves practical things and I remember reading on her blog that she is into the bird theme. Hope she likes it.
Cute! I always make my best stuff when I am making it for other people!
