My latest sewing adventures have included sewing with leather! I also discovered that I do not need a special Teflon sewing foot to be able to sew leather. My Pfaff 2038 with its IDT feature gets the job done nicely. A leather sewing needle is a must though.
PA Fabric Outlet in Lemoyne, PA. Here I can sort through a bin of leather remnants and pay by the pound. I have been experimenting with all different kinds of leathers and weights. I am really enjoying it! Adding leather to totes was a no brainer.
fabric wallets in the past but decided to experiment with a leather version. Super simple, but effective. The leather is super buttery too.
ModernArtStamps. I picked some fabric safe ink up at Michaels and have been experimenting with labels. I don't like stamping on twill tape. It's not as crisp as I would like it to be, but I do like stamping the wrong side of a quilting cotton print. I like the washed-out subtle design and the stamped image results are much clearer.
And some other projects not quite finished.
I really miss writing on here. I just haven't make photography a priority lately. I need to get back into the habit because this blog has been such a great record of fun things for me.
Thanks for stopping by!
