It appears that a year has come and gone since the last time I posted to this here little blog.
A lot has happened since I last popped in. A busy year to be sure, due to all sorts of things. But in terms of craft chronology, it went something like this:
Nov – May: Sew lots and lots (and lots!) of Podpillows. Become best friends with my local post office clerk. Stockpile fabric. Drive down the price of barley at every supermarket for miles around (seriously – from $1.29 to $.89. That was all me, I swear).
June – Now – Abandon sewing machine. Put Etsy store in “vacation mode.” Spend time recovering from craft overload.
After a few months of recharging, it was this here Joel Dewberry fabric that drew me back into the fold. I spotted it at the second-newest fabric store in town (yes, there are TWO new fabric stores in town. Craft heaven.) and I bought some. I made this wristlet and lots of curtains for home. Here’s the wristlet!
It’s my first foray into flower adornments. I used this awesome tutorial. It’s also my first foray into Melissa Averinos fabric (also found at the aforementioned fabric store. Did I tell you it’s a discount fabric store, too? Love!).
The inside has six slots for credit cards, and, of course, a custom pocket for an iPhone. I carry this sucker everywhere.
Isn’t the power of new fabric amazing? Anyway, glad to be back!Posted by robyn on November 19th, 2011 under crafts, sewing
