I wanted to use the printed fabrics to make a more interesting object. So I did one of my google searches for a 'japanese sewn gift' or something like that and I saw this beautiful triangle purse . I decided to have a go at making my own. Perhaps it was a little ambitious considering I haven't made any sort of zipper pouch before. Looking back (and at a youtube video explaining how to make a zipper pouch) I realise I didn't go about it in the most logical way, which explains it's wonkyness. hmmm. BUT I have a little moto which I like to say to myself when I'm stitching, 'It's the mistakes which make it perfect'. Total dork!
Thanks for the japanese magazine suggestions, telling me the blog faults (all fixed now I hope) and for telling me about your craft projects! Always nice to hear what you are up to.
