In other fun news, I've been working on some handmade projects other than cardmaking lately....made this little owl here:
I am by no means a seamstress in any capacity!! But I do like to venture out often and do crafty things in territories that I'm unfamiliar with....I really do love to explore and learn all the time....if I stop learning new things, I can get really bored....and you never want boredom to settle in!! Even as a busy mom, you always want to be doing something new and adventurous!!
I found these cute little kits that you can sew by hand, owl patterns, a teddy bear pattern, and even a cell phone/iphone pattern! Sooo cute! I plan on doing the bear next and then making some felt iphone holders for some of my iphone obsessed friends....LOL!
It's just all so much fun, and like I said, these are really easy-to-do stitching that comes with several patterns you can choose from and develop into your own design. Here is a closeup of the top of the owls head, I learned how to do simple x-stitching, whip stitching, and applique stitching:
For this final photo, I used sequin stitching and the running stitch that you see on the top row:
Totally can't wait to work on the bear pattern.....just something so different and exciting for me!
I hope you have a great day!!
