I Still Love To Sew

I miss sewing! With all the design and illustration classes I have going on these days, I have FIVE projects due this week.

I’ve had to spend almost all of my free time working on homework.

But I managed to sneak in a little sewing.

I made these sets of zipper bags and wallets to hold some of my art supplies, especially my favorite fine-tip and brush-tip markers. What better fabric than the paint-by-number prints from the Lush collection by Erin Michael to carry art supplies in.

I should mention that I used the pattern from my Simple Makeup Bag tutorial for these zipper pouches. The pattern for the wallet is a new idea I’ve been working on.

I like to use index cards when brainstorming ideas, so I thought it would be fun to have some artsy wallets to store my cards inside.

I hope you haven’t given up on my sewing!

I still dream of sitting at my sewing machine for hours in the evenings, working away on another experiment or figuring out how to bring a new inspiration to life.
