I really admire people who are able to create, design, and come up with ideas all their own, like in a great new book called Zakka Handmades written by Amy Morinaka at Chick Chick Sewing. In need of a new project, I decided to make Amy’s Raindrop tote, but rather than decorate it with raindrops I thought I’d challenge myself and try to design something of my own. I spotted a mouse I had made awhile back from a pattern in the magazine “Molly Makes” and decided to try to draw it on paper and embroider it on linen, then incorporate it into Amy’s tote pattern from her book.
And, here’s what happened next ….
Martin, A Town Mouse
And one last shot -
