Its almost back to school time! I am happy with how our holidays went this year.
I finished one zippered pouch. J wanted one to put knick knacks in. I’m in love with the post card fabric and Essex Linen fabric.
I think they both go well together.
With each bag I sew, I’m learning a new thing. Like for instances , with this bag, I learnt to pay more attention to the zipper tab I’m using. I added a little shoe charm zipper pull as the zipper I got was a lock type short one which I did not know when I purchased it.
It has always been my dream to embroider on Linen and using linen embroidery thread from DMC, I did a little freestyle stitchery because I was not able to transfer my design using carbon paper.
Right after I finished making this pouch J wanted me to make him a smaller pouch with just the linen fabric .
He gave me the specifics about the size and the features , he wanted in his pouch, like a little pocket to keep his cards
and also a zipper pouch for change.
After working on the previous pouch, I kind of made up as I went along. I should have searched up for tutorials but with busy days, I did not have much time for that.I have a lot of practice to insert a zipper pocket. But the fear of adding a zipper pocket is gone. One step forward Yay!
I added the same stitchery ‘ Begin each day with a grateful heart ‘to this pouch.
It is a simple design I drew after I decided that Grateful was going to be my word for the year.
To accept the good and the bad things with a grateful heart. Because I believe that God is in control always and makes all things to work together for good, for his children.
I’m thrilled to see J carry it around with him everywhere.
