When I make my bags, I have this habit of spending the whole day just cutting fabric. I would spend other days sewing them up. About 2 weeks ago, I cut fabric for fat bottomed drawstring pouches. But as it turned out, I wasn't able to sew them all. I had 3 left.
This week, I have to make a few bags and pouches for my craft market sale at Open Door's Weekend Market on 18th and 19th September which is just a few days away. I thought I would sew up these ready-cut fabric. That's the thing. Two weeks ago, I was all gaga over drawstring pouches. This week, not so much. I did make them. But I had the same feeling as when I ate one more slice of chocolate cake when I shoulda just stopped.
Mid-Autumn Festival is coming soon. Okay, I don't know the exact date but I know it's soon because mooncakes and lanterns are sold everywhere in Singapore. Singaporeans call it the Mooncake Festival which is more appropriate because we don't have Autumn here. Just hot, humid, rain, flood, hotter, even hotter, so humid and dem hot. The only way we experience cold is in air-conditioned rooms and as experienced by me at Orchard Central, can be brutally cold.
For my Open Doors Weekend Market, I wanted to include some zip pouches. Since I'm all out of flower-flower zip pouches, I decided I would make some more. I'll be honest. It's not easy to come up with so many different ways of presenting the flower-flower applique. I won't be surprised if I suffer from flower-flower fatigue soon. I only made 5 because I did not want to over-do it.
These three insects zip pouches were done over the weekend.
Handstitching is very sore on the fingers on denim. After sewing the applique for these 3 pouches, my fingers really hated me.
I'm only able to sew for 2 more days this week so I'm thinking maybe 2 to 3 more items would be great. Good nite.
