Loves2experiment over Oregon was so kind to mail me this sweetest
handmade gift: "ayumi" stamp. *smile* I truly love it.
I have been very interested in carving my own stamp using erasers
like she did. I've collected everything I need to start. This Japanese
stamp-making book, an x-act knif, and even a couple of big erasers
that are specifically made for carving stamps out of.
But the question is then, "why don't I begin?".
Well, I am quite terrible at drawing. Even just tracing seems
a little intimidating to me.
But thanks a lot to Loves2experiment, now I have my own
original name stamp that's way cuter than I would make
by myself! Woo hoo!!
So I used the stamp to make this little "ayumi" bag.
It was quick. No lining. No patchwork. Not even caution to
sew neatly. This time I wanted to have fun with free-stitching.
It turned out pretty cute. I am using it to put some necessities
in including fruity gum, a chopstick, and dental floss.
Sometimes crazing sewing is fun.
By the way, thanks soooooo much for many nice comments
on my last post. I am absolutely grateful that you guys
like the tutorial and surprisingly some of you already
made super cute reversible patchwork bags!!!
You are super fast! And I love it!
