She went on and on about how no one taught her how to sew; directing a small jab at my ego.
In betwixt the jabs, she lovingly chortled at my attempts. It took awhile but I FINALLY got it. I was looking at the patchwork square as one large square but it was actually 4 smaller squares sewn together. Oh yes, this is the challenge of patchwork; being able to see the design in your head. It reminds me how artists describe their creative experience as 'seeing colors'.
So you see, the confusion was all me. Once I finally 'got it', everything my mom shared made sense. But I still have black and blues from her jabs at my ego!!
For now, I'll stick to my zakka sewing. Today, I share with you my latest linen tote bag..same deer applique that I love ... but this time I changed up the bag handle.
This bag will be in my etsy shop soon.
I also made a couple more bento bags for the shop ...
|a Hello Kitty bow is a must for this bag !|
Thank you for stopping by .....
happy day (*^-^*)
