This pair brings me up to 12. Only 14 more to go.
I finally decided to bite the bullet and tackle some more skinny book pages. You will recall from previous posts that I am making 26 original pages for Chrysti Hydeck’s skinny book exchange (as featured in a recent issue of Cloth Paper Scissors.) Partially due to my fear that I will wake up and have all the unfinished pages due at once, and partially because I am tired of making purses right now (I have a whole bunch posted on my Etsy site www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com) I chose to make 4 pages. Here they are with (hopefully) a few more to follow in the next few days.
My next venture August 1, 2007
I am an admitted purse-o-holic. My constant search for the “perfect purse” (you know, the one that will make your life complete?) has led me to start wanting to make them myself. So I purchased a few books, a few patterns and a whole heap of funky fabrics. Yet I still couldn’t bring myself to try and make a purse. Why? Fear. It is so wierd to me that even after all the things I have successfully created, certain things still scare me. In this case, trying to line a purse and create a square bottom had me quaking in my shoes. So, I took a class and in less than two hours had mastered the skill I feared to try on my own. The result, three funky fabulous purses ready to use. Will I use them? Maybe. More likely I will try to sell them. After all, I am not yet sure I have created the perfect one.
The above purse started life as two placemats. See more purses and stuff at my etsy shop www.beautifullystrange.etsy.com
