Before I talk about this project I have an exciting update about my Etsy shop. After months of hinting at it, the shop now finally exists and will be open in a matter of weeks. I can’t wait to share it with you! Until then if you fancy a bit of a look behind-the-scenes as I get everything ready why not follow The Goozeberry Jar on Instagram here? I’ve also given this blog a well-overdue spring clean so there are a few new things to have a look at here too.
OK, now onto the project in the picture…a prototype pug pencil case! Fully lined & with interfacing. I did all of the fun bit last summer – dyeing the fabric & stitching the pug – but was a bit scared of putting it all together until now. This was my first zip & I’ve never been so thankful for YouTube tutorials in my life
All of the bits of embroidery I’ve done before have just been put away once I’ve finished them so I wanted to try and step it up & make something that could actually be used. I liked the crinkly look of the fabric after I’d dyed it so I didn’t iron it out – be proud of those wrinkles people
There will be more of these in future so hopefully I can improve on this one. The plan is to have a mixture of printed goodies and handmade items in my shop, so if you like the look of this one you might be able to get your hands on something similar!
