I bought cute little buttons tonight, but enough, I want piles! I'll search on Etsy tonight for cool ones..
But, the big thing here is that mi_chi_ru is so smart!! I love gantai (eyepatches), but would I have ever thought of a gantai-gantai? Not for a while at least ;p Anyways, I whipped this up tonight - it has a cotton lining and the patch is not sewn to the elastic, so you can move it to which ever eye you want, reposition it easily, etc. This one is not quite done yet, I have to finish sewing the bottom up - so it may seem a little lumpy.
If you're coming from the FRUITS community or want to order one, read the cut!
Here's a brooch I was working on with my cool new felt ;) It is obviously not finished, it doesn't even have a face yet..
I'm afraid my tension on my machine is shot again. I can't sew lightweight material without loose stiches. Which is what I am using for my commission right now *argh, of course* I think it'll have to go to the shop. That's the only problem it's ever had and it's from 1978, like me, just a baby..
Oh yeah - mi_chi_ru
, I will send you the gantai for free if you want it, since you came up with this idea!
