Handsewing Knitting

I have been doing a hand stitching class with a lovely Korean lady here in Auckland
She is a fantastic teacher and has taught me many new techniques.

The above bag is a large carry bag with pockets on the inside and a large drink bottle pocket on the outside.
This entire bag is hand stitched, hand quilted and hand embroidered.
The handles on the bag have also been hand stitched on.

I loved making this bag so much. I love hand stitching the Japanese method... not much use for a sewing machine handsewing everything.

I also did a class to make this owl brooch. 
All hand made with no sewing machine either.

I am also enjoying knitting. 
I have been knitting mainly at night.
This is a cute knitted vest, booties and beanie for a newborn little girl. 

Hi to my new followers.

Tilda tutorials are coming soon.... Im working on these

Happy sewing
