Day five of the "7 Projects to Snap You Out of a Slump" is
Choose a shape as your muse for the day. Any artwork you do should incorporate that shape as your predominant theme (rectangle, stripes, circles, paisley, etc.)
I chose paisley as my shape!
I stopped by Dafne's house for a few minutes this morning and she has a paisley mirror in her entrance way! Funny how you notice those things when you have a word in the front of your mind (like on Monday I couldn't believe all of the things I saw that were yellow).
I cheated a little and went back to sewing today. I say cheated because it's the kind of artwork that I do a lot of and the whole point of this week is to break out of the routine. But look what I made!
I absolutely LOVE it! See the handle? My new machine makes this nice stitch.
Then I made a zipper pouch and made a paisley shape on the fabric with a suede-like cloth.
The paisley shape looked like a pond, and guess what my new sewing machine can make? Turtles!
Too fun. I also started this purse but I sewed the inside lining in backwards and I'm through for the day. I'll have to take that one apart and turn it around another day.
