Sewing Things

I’ve been sewing a few small things in-between other projects (and life!) over the last month or so, and this is them:

On the left are three folded squares of fabric, slightly overlapping each other. The top one is green, the middle one is pale pink, and the bottom one is black-and-white striped. On the right is a small navy blue banner, mostly covered in embroidered badges. The squares and the banner are on a wood background.

These are furoshiki wraps – squares of fabric tied around objects like a bag. I meant to make them all the same size, but I don’t mind a bit of variety!

The three furoshiki wraps are folded into small rectangles and overlap each other slightly on the wood background. Top to bottom is the pale pink one, the black-and-white striped one, and the green one.

I don’t quite know what I’ll use them for yet, but I’m sure I’ll find something. Perhaps I’ll use them for transporting my book collection in my bag….

On the wood background, the green furoshiki wrap is tied around a rectangular object. Beside it, the other two wraps are crookedly stacked on top of each other.

I also got round to whipping up this little display banner for my badges! It only took about half an hour to sew.

A small navy blue fabric banner is laid flat on a wood background, with the bar and string at the top.
A small navy blue fabric banner, mostly covered in small embroidered badges, hangs from a white hook on a white wall.

Incredibly simple, yet incredibly effective. And already looking a little bit crowded! Have I really made that many?! (I say, having about this many again on my bag, and having ideas for at least 5 more in my sketchbook.) At least these banners are quick to whip up.

Anyways, see ya!
