Re-Release:: Zip It!

I have always really liked this pattern because it’s so simple to make. And when you are recycling a skirt for fabric, it uses up that part that is hard keep in tacked. Use a little bit of bias or hem tape or ribbon to cover up the raw edge inside of the clutch and you have one really nice finished clutch in just a few minutes. Perfect.

Stitch Clutch

Stitch Clutch
Hi ya folks! Success! Well, haha, kind of. No embroidery still, but some stitchy goodness all the same. This clutch was originally inspired by a few different sources. I wanted to create a light weight, thin, lovely gift to feature in Kro Postal for starters. I had a need to use of scraps of fabric that I had laying around. I wanted to try my hand at machine appliqué as well as using the sewing machine to draw. It was so fun to make and even better to give as a gift to a friend who is far away and could use a package of goodies.

Temari Ball Bag

temari ball bag

I saw a new book on Temari at the public library. Dang it. I just had to bring it home. Then I just had to read it. And you see where this is going, I just had to try it! I collected up all my temari ball making supplies and soon realized that I would need something to put them in. I’m normally okay with zip lock bags, but for whatever reason, I wanted a temari ball bag that would have all my essentials for the ball I was working on. The other driving factor is that a temari ball is just the kind of favorite thing that my ferrets love to steal and hide and re-hide until they have really done a number on it. So a zipper was needed too.
