I have an moderately obsessive personality. I tend to hone in on one thing and do it over and over again. Like sewing purses for instance. About a year ago, every time I walked into a fabric store, all I could think of was how great a print would look on a purse. Then I made so many bags that I couldn’t use them all or find any more friends to accept them. Now, when I look at fabric all I can think of is how well it will look on a seamstress apron or a drawing case. I first saw a small piece of Building Blocks fabric on Autum’s bloggette, and I knew I had to have some. What better fabric for a couple of seamstress aprons?
But the fabric was so inspiring that I made a seamstress journal, too. (yep, that’s a oddly-covered composition notebook on the right.)
And of course, every seamstress needs a seamstress pincushion!
Or two. 🙂
And finally a drawing case.
Isn’t the ribbon closure brilliant? I saw it here then non-bloggetter Jen told me that she did hers with ribbon as well. It’s much easier to put on and would be perfect for older kiddos who can tie a knot.
You’d think I’d be burned out on this fabric, but I’m not. I just got a charm pack of it and I can’t wait to get more yardage!
Autumn, you are SO RIGHT. Blog is a boring word. We need to find something nicer. 😉
