If I try another new craft, I think my family will have me committed, so I shall be working on expanding my horizons as a formulator by playing with new stuff! I just need some workshop time!!!
Why I decided to take up such a fiddly craft when my eye sight is degrading so quickly, I'm buying a new pair of reading glasses every few months, I'll never know. But I do love designing and wearing my own stuff! I mean, try finding lime green earrings! You can't!
Handout: Making earrings
I love sewing - I'm working on a new messenger bag with the cutest pie fabric! - so here are a few of my favourite patterns! (Don't let not having a sewing machine stop you from sewing. I sew everything by hand - purses, bags, shorts, and so on. For about $5.00 for some needles, pins, thread, and a pair of scissors, you can start making your own beautiful stuff!)
Make a dual layer sunglass case. I love this pattern! I can keep my sunglasses in the front and my reading glasses inside...Pattern and instructions.
