I've been staying busy for the past couple of weeks. I decided to sew a purse. I've crocheted purses before and, after seeing many cute purses on several blogs, I wanted to sew one. I found this pattern. It's called Catalina Sling and it's by Pink Sand Beach Designs. The directions were detailed and easy to follow. It's a bigger purse than I've been carrying, but I found bigger isn't too bad. I can stuff all kinds of things in it.
I ordered some fabric from Textile Studio Patterns and made another top. This is the same pattern I used before, Textile Pattern # 1201, Basic Top. I usually wear bright or dark colors, but I thought this light color was pretty.
I also made a pair of capris. This is Butterick pattern #4962. It has a waist facing instead of a waistband. I like how these fit. I made my usual fit adjustments, shortened crotch length and lengthened crotch width. The waist facing made these easy to fit. I used a stretch denim I found at JoAnn's last summer.
Ok, I found something else to work on. Cards! I used to stamp a little several years ago. My DD and I were talking and she told me she has gotten into it. Well, that got me started again. I pulled out some card stock and supplies and stared at everything for a long time. LOL! Well, isn't that productive? I looked at the colors and stamps and looked some more. I finally picked out a few things and this is what I came up with. I thought it would be neat to weave some ribbon through the card. I like it, sort of. It needs something. Color, for one. I'll keep playing and see what else I come up with.
I've been crocheting a little bit too. I'll post a picture soon.
I have a question. How many hobbies or crafts do you like to do? Do you work on one at a time or do you have several projects going?
