I started an Art Development Plan as I talked about in my last post which was a while ago. The plan has my goals for my art and it breaks those goals down into some steps. I realized that I need to break down the steps further or they will be too big to handle to start with. I think I also need to put some things on the calendar so I remember them like going to the studio twice a month to start with and eventually once a week not including open studio days.
Mom and I celebrated the 4th of July being creative at the studio. We each kept running into some set backs, but we had fun anyway. I have finally got a smart phone so I figured it would be fun to make a little pouch for it. My husband has the same phone so if I made a funky pouch to keep it in, he'd be less likely to take my phone by accident or vice versa.
I started with a scrap of fabrics that Mom had sewn together for making pieced insets for one of her jackets.
This is the part that I cut out for a pouch, but I goofed on measuring. I forgot to account for the thickness of the phone so I added another strip of fabric along one edge.
jacket insets again. I fixed my measurements this time so I didn't have to add an extra strip of fabric along the edge. (10.5" x 3.75" for a Samsung Prevail phone)
This time I used the zig-zag stitch on the machine to couch down some purple ribbon and Stef Francis 5400 rayon thread.
Today is open studios and it's sort of quiet here so maybe I'll attempt a camera pouch again. Everyone must be at the beach.
