This little bag (fully reversible!) was made on my new sewing machine.
|My first creation, reversible handbag|
|High quality thread|
|Janome Magnolia Model Sewing Machine|
|Finished product with original tags|
|Womanly Roots pads Moon pads|
My first plan of action was to use some of the awesome retro fabrics lying around in my Grandmother's unfinished dress collection (her sewing machine was one step beyond my Mother's in that it smoked when I tried to use it).
|hand cut patterns|
I create all my own patterns with a large roll of newsprint I acquired with some determination at the local paper when I was thirteen years old. For sentimentality I use the box of needles left by my grandmother.
The inner four layers of the moon pad are cotton flannel and thin corduroy for extra absorbancy.
|A variety of stitching embellishments|
My darling new machine comes with a variety of lovely stitches that both strengthen and embellish the pad with pretty patterns in contrasting colors.
These pads are made with the intention to last a long time so that you get your moneys worth and help the environment too. No more messy trash and landfill contributions.
