Today was a day of a lot of thinking and brainstorming and making lists. Also thinking about the next guy I will be hand sewing for myself with plenty of room for experimenting.
First I had to go in and sew up small sections of the old seams that were a bit off. Small holes that maybe someone else wouldn't see in the final creature, but I knew they were they and they bothered me.
In the ATC group I belong to, we will be making pages for a collaborative book with the theme of "house". Today I started making lists of anything to do with the word house...common phrases, different slants on the word "house" itself.
A second list was started for longer phrases, titles, lyrics, etc.
The pages will be 4"x6" vertically oriented. I am not sure I will use ANY of the things I listed today, but it has me thinking in a lot of different directions. This project has a February deadline so there is plenty of time -- but I want to get an idea or two and then use the time to really express what I choose.
I am not sure if each of my pages will be the same or if they will all be different.
Back to the sewn-together-piece-of-fabric. I sewed up the long edge with gold-ish thread so I could tell which seam was the side.
I need to make the legs...
...and decide whether they will be placed inside of the bottom seam or if they will be added onto the surface of the body.
