Wall pocket

I finally got some time to do some sewing again. Here's a little wall pocket I made for my bulletin board. The little tab on the lower right was meant to hold a pen, but it was too small. It was nice to finally make up my own pattern though (and know how to execute it!)

Thanks for all the wonderful ideas as to what I should do with the reprints. I need to get creative, especially since I have about 200 of them! Tom Barrett had a great idea with turning them into envelopes, I just did a little test run and it looks like might work out! More soon. Thanks, Tom!

This is too cute Jannie! Do you get Mary Englbreit's Home Companion? Sometimes there are really cute things in there with such fun little fabrics! I know you must get CRAFT and their email newsletter!! This lil' pocket is too presh, looks like a lil' bunny, just in time for Easter!!

cute pocket! You should sell these, they are great! you could make kangaroos, monsters and animals... In your spare time, of course! ;)

It's awesome that you make time for other things besides painting. It helps keep the burn outs away.

The wall pocket is very nice. Glad to see you got some sewing time in. I have been itching to take out my HK machine, but knitting is more portable for taking care of a baby.

Hey Chicken Girl!! I was wondering.. do you use adobe illustrator for your illustrations? I was just trying adobe illustrator and I find it sooo hard to use for illustrating! So I was just wondering if you had any suggestions on illustrating programs if you dont use adobe illustrator?

Andi: I use to love Mary Englbreit. I haven't looked at her stuff in a while. She's got a whole empire going, its pretty awesome, isn't it?

Bearuh: Perhaps you want to try photoshop or even Painter. I've been wanting to try Painter myself...but I'm concentrating on learning Flash right now. I think might be a more "natural" way to draw instead of Illustrator.

Looks like so much fun! I wish I knew how to sew! I like all of the birds you've made in your illustrations.
