2017 Wk 38 -Designs & Stuff

I seem to have got myself an agent (a pimp?)! A lady who runs a burger bar also sells polo-shirts and sweatshirts for a friend of hers (I know, a strange combination!) I have done some embroidery for a couple of people who happen to be her customers, and she is now offering my services to her other customers

These designs have been messaged to me to see if they can be digitised - and I've had great fun!

I also did a design for the lovely Amo

While they were stitching I had a play with a new zippy pouch:
It progressed from this

to this

to this!

It's a gift for a friend whose birthday is this week - she has just learnt to crochet so I'm stealing a suggestion from Jackie and making a pouch for her crochet hook collection she will inevitably now start to buy

And my final creative photos today are from me dragging the family out to a pottery lesson! Luckily they enjoyed it more than they expected and we've chosen 7 to be glazed and fired and collected in a month or so

Hope you had a fun weekend too!


  1. Glad to be of help with my suggestion and looking forward to making one myself. Pottery looks great fun!

  2. Great pouch, Benta. Not sure I could cope with that zip though.
    The pottery looks great fun. How exciting waiting for it to be fired!

  3. Your spectrum of crafts is so wide and diverse! I’m jealous as I dont venture much out of the sewing arena.

  4. Those pots look very professional Benta :)

  5. My Friend Benta ... has a pimp! HEEHEE!! Yes, I'm a 12 year old boy masquerading as a 55 year old woman :D
    You've been having some good clean (well, clean for a woman with a pimp, anyways!) crafty fun - congrats on the new leads for embro jobs :) Sweet zipper pouch - I think I may have recently pinned a tutorial for either that exact bag, or one very similar to it :D I collect selvages as well - I made blocks for a quilt top with some of them (the blocks have been ripening for a while now), and haven't picked a project for the rest. I suspect, with my love of zippers, that selvage zipper pouches of some sort are in my future - selvages are sooo pretty!

  6. That's good that you have an agent/pimp now :) Your pouch looks great and the pottery must have been fun :)

  7. And I’m over the moon with the rescue patches! The potting is fab. Well done. Used to love getting a bit mucky myself back in the day.
