A dog de-sexing, a weekend in Sydney, a weekend in Melbourne, getting my ovaries ready for making babies.....there has a lot going on but I did find time to make something finally this weekend!
I present the Cloud Tree Clutch.
I designed the repetitive tree pattern, then cut them out of vinyl and burnt a screen for my Yudu.
Design Laid Out on the Yudu Ready for ExposureThis is the screen just after i have burnt it, before washing out the un-exposed emulsion. You can just see the light green areas.
I screen printed some white cloud trees on grey cotton drill, i love the diagonal textured weave of drill fabric.
I then cut out my pieces, along with a screen printed logo on my pocket, and cut out my own pattern, just a rectangle with rounded off corners. I used a pair of old jeans for the lining, denim is good for lining because it creates some weight without having to use interfacing which i find a bit stiff sometimes.
I am very happy with it and will put putting it in my overly neglected Made It Shop this week.
Things i am looking forward to in our new house...
- My Very own craft room when i can contain my mess (containment, is this just wishful thinking?)
- Having a happy sunfilled wall with a some funky hooks to hang bags on and take photos.
- My lush tropical garden view from my sewing machine.
