We've heard it often enough
so it must be true.
Sometimes we make changes because
others ask it of us.
Last year, for instance...
I was asked to make some yoga mat carriers
for the shop
Harmony in Life
that were more androgynous.
Then...because I was tired of the
same ol' same ol' designing
I went a step further and got a bit
urban funky with it.
(see Aug 2011 The Mat Pack post)
Bottom line...they didn't sell...
not a one of 'em.
fabric scraps...thanks to sister Tina for thinking
of me when these bits and pieces
landed on her craft room floor...
and instead of tossing them
gave them to me because she was sure
I would find a use for them...
and here it is...
as I call it...
the sewing machine.
With those awesome prints to guide me
I went back to my original
way of thinking...
make 'em pretty.
balanced with feminine
Even had a few scars to prove it.
I borrowed a technique I
saw on my young nephew, Sam's jeans...
an inside patch!
How pretty is that?
adds to the beauty of
the finished product.
the customer knows best.
