Holding my own Craft party

So, my friends have been hassling me for a while now to show them this, that and the other. I have a lot of spare material lying around and thought what better way to use this up than by sharing it with my friends.

I invited them all round and went through how to make a device case with a flap that has button and elastic. I can honestly say that it was difficult! It took 4 hours! With a lot of slow setting sewing on the machine and learning to cut fabric in a straight line, we finally managed a finished product. I am so proud of all my new ‘students’ but might be a while before we make anything else haha. Here are the results….

Japanese garden and Ape watercolours

I am pleased to have finally finished a commission for one of my clients after months of hard work, as well as him purchasing another recent watercolour that he fell in love with.

I can now concentrate on building a cohesive collection and not neglecting family and friend requests! After all, they will always be my biggest fans :)

Making my own canvas

So I attempted to make my own canvas from scratch to challenge myself. Also, large custom canvases are so expensive! I did have help from boyfriend when cutting the wood but overall, I found the process quite simple !  Here are the step by step pictures of our efforts.
