I really love using this Kokka Japanese designer fabric - I only have a little, itsy bit left, but I'm eeking it out as much as I can - I may have another look at it today to see how else I can use it.
I made another zipper pouch this week, and couldn't resist adding a heart applique to the front to mirror the lining, and then a little tab seemed to be a good idea too! To be honest his was the second 'make' of the day - I'd decided to make an iPad sleeve in this lovely pink plaid tweed, so once the pink thread was in the sewing machine, I though I might as well carry on with a zipper pouch . . .
Well, I don't suppose you can blame me for wanting to use this tweed more than once, hehe :) I added a lovely fuschia felt lining to the iPad sleeve - I use Kunin recycled felt for this purpose, it has a lovely 'feel' to it . . .
I seemed to have had a bit of a 'pink' week - that means I'd better 'juggle' the colours around a bit today. I'm thinking some more of these zippy purses maybe? I actually managed to add these two items to my shop on the same day I made them - that doesn't happen very often!
Hope you're having a lovely creative day. I have a snuffly 'Little S' with me today, and with one thing or another have had to cancel this weekend's craft fair - it was going to be a no-goer for various reasons - sometime you just have to admit defeat, but I'll use the time wisely and hopefully get lots of 'making' done instead :)
I'll finish up with one of my new photographer's (a.k.a. Little S's) shots from his photography class last week . . .
Sun, sea and blue skies - this is what we want! Not quite so sunny today, but never mind - I'm off to get my 'tweeds' out and get some creative sewing on the go - might have a little breakfast first though!
Some wonderful creative spaces over here - it's worth taking the time to browse the lovely 'makes' on the go :)
Bye for Now
