Remember I mentioned about sewing in my previous post?
Well, I wanted to post earlier but only manage to do it today.
I know it is not related to wire jewelry but I have some ideas in my little head on combining this two one day.
Tried this once before here, but I got distracted after that. And also some old projects here....
Now about my sewing....I am self thought just like wire jewelry. Learned most of it from my mom (ermm about 30 years ago....) but only the most basic i.e. sewing in straight line...very little actually. So, the most popular sewing projects are pillow cases and blankets...LOL. Sew quite a few of them. The patchwork blanket I made for my self and been accompanying me from my teen till now and all around the country for more than 20 years ago is still around. William "inherited" it from me now but with lots of "patchwork" to cover up the old patches. Can't show picture here....you know, shy shy....
Another item I sewed my self and that still accompany me till this day is a cross stitched pencil case.
Unlike 20/30 years ago, sewing is made easier by the internet. Tonnes of tutorials/lessons are available online for self learner like me. This pencil case here is based on Ayumi of Pink Penguin's (love her work and blog) tutorial for a wristlet. I left out the internal pocket and handle but her step by step instruction is very easy to follow :).
The happy little guy with his first handmade pencil case.
