Origami Sewing Companion...
While sitting at my computer which is a huge "library" of great information and inspiration I came across this "Simple Sewing Companion" from Popular Patchwork blog. You will find all the information just by clicking her link. Thank you very much. Now you know me enough to understand that I "save" things like this for future reference. Fortunately I needed some birthday gifts in a hurry and Voila!
Here is the beginning of the next few I need to sew. This shows the interfacing step before the sewing happens. With any first prototype the going is a little slow and unsteady. However the next several are much faster and clearer.
I think I would skip drawing the lines as once you sew and turn they are of no help.
Still using my stash of fabrics and buttons. I even had a stash of small tassels to select from. I think that is a perfect reason to in fact have stash! No wasted time or trip to the store.
I will be mailing these so will not fill them with the usual scissors and needles. Besides the person who will receive this definitely has a lifetime supply of sewing supplies. She taught me how to sew.
Do you think you will make one or many of these? Or are you like me and file the idea away for future use...possibly forgetting that you even saved such a great little gift idea?
January is off and running quickly. I am off and running to my local Chamber of Commerce. I stopped in on Saturday to do some local shopping. I happened to look "around the corner" to my shared desk area and saw the stack for me. I better get in there and complete my stack of tasks!
Still not thinking of a word for this year. I am enjoying reading your blogs and seeing what you are doing. I did come across this quote (sorry I do not know where I saw it to give credit) by Albert Einstein and find it very fitting to my thinking...
"Play is the highest form of research". Now lets all play...every day! After all Play was my word in a previous year.
Enjoying a Creative Blissful life and hoping you are doing so also...
