More sewing

Today has been a mixed day, usual tidying and shopping and then home for brunch, but I didn't  get the usual rush to go play. 

I looked through  sources of inspiration but nothing spoke to me. Usually when that happens, if start painting on a tag or in a journal, it starts to flow and then I'm off. Those amongst you who are crafters of art, will probably know that, of which I speak, that life force which blazes through your veins as ideas pop one by one. Well it didn't happen today.

I half made a tag but was quickly bored. I started tidying, and sorting, but nothing was going to kinder that spark, so I went into the upstairs room, which now houses, the sewing machine, wool, books, paper and card stash. I love having the sewing machine set up and ready to go. 

Sitting and relaxing sparked the flame, more ipad covers,  and I was off. I have now made another two. The first, is very plain. Like the others it has a pocket at the front for phone, or head phones as well a place to put your stylus if you have one.

On this one I added some satin bias tape, I alsoI drew and cut out a heart which I stitched onto the pocket. I used a pretty stitch which gave  scolloped  edge.


Here it is in use. 

I hope you enjoyed seeing where my journey took me today. Take care all, and hope to see you soon. Xxx
