The rumors are true. I have blog. Yeah, I know. Slacker. (We’ve been watching Back to the Future. Well, Samy has. A lot. I hear it playing in the background). Anyway. I have something I’d like to share that I really enjoyed doing this past week!
I made a Well Traveled Sewing Book. Woohoo. And you know what else ? I really love it! So let me just give you a tour. Yes?
Here’s the front and back covers..
Here’s a look at the insides. This is the inside of the front cover, & the first “page”..
Again my seam ripper and I were joined at the hips (if seam rippers had hips.. funny). I just couldn’t decide on colors, but the results were satisfying. I wish I knew the name of this berry fabric. I’d buy yardage!
..the inside of my second page. The use of clear vinyl was inspired from my Pouch With A View (details on IG). It makes a great pocket for my embroidery threads & Hexies I think, or anything I’d like to view immediately. And of course the pleated pocket. Gotta love that!
And finally the back of the second page, and inside of the back cover.
Again, I used some of my most cherished fabrics. Sparingly, I simply don’t have much of them left & some of them are hard to find now.
Over all, I love the pattern! It was well worth becoming BFFs with my seam ripper. My fingers were crying out in anguish, but my heart was gratefully fluttering after.
I still want to personalize it even more. Buttons, hand sewn tags, embroidery, all that jazz. But I figure those will come when I’m sitting around (not likely, probably on road trips), looking for something to sew. If your looking for something adorable to hold your sewing items (aside from a sew-together-bag), I’d say this is the perfect one.
Tag me on IG if you make one. I always love being inspired by you all. Hope you enjoyed looking through my book. Happy Sewing dear friends :•).
