Padfolio

This is the padfolio that I was working on. The green yarn is just temporary until I can figure out what I want to do. I may make some sort of cord on my sewing machine. I also want to add some beads to the ends of the cord. This was my first time putting an eyelet in something. Of course, I couldn't practice on something else first. Luckily I did it right the first time.

Sue Bleiweiss has tutorial for making these.

This is the outside of the whole piece. I love this piece of dyed fbric and have been waiting for something to use it in.


Just the inside that shows the pockets. The straight one is for the pad of paper and the slanted one is for whatever I want to put in it.
Warm weather has finally come to NH. Tomorrow it is supossed to get up into the 90's. Too hot for me!!! Guess I won't be doing ot much on my day off. Hot weather really wears me out. Guess I need to find the fan. Also, the black flies and mosquitos are out in full force. If we aren't careful, we will be eaten alive!!
