I have been experimenting on how best to make these clutches, a pouch with a square bottom and have been adapting the jordy technique for the bottom of the bag and then sewing the bag shut via the lining. Here are a few I finished this weekend!
I love love love this fabric by Etsuko Furaya from her Echino line. Its a japanese import so you basically have to buy it online and have already used up my entire stash. Today I made six clutches. Its a cross between a pouch and a jordy bag with squared out corners. They all have black zippers and I lined the inside with Kaffe Fasset's spot fabric in purple with lime dots, bright and funky, just how I like things.
I'm new to the world of gocco and loving it. I put off buying one for a long time because I wasn't sure once my initial phase of printing, would I keep using it? how far would the inks go? would this be another expensive toy? but... I gave in and bought one and have already run out of screens, and I keep coming up with more ideas for things I wanted to print. These are my first cards, some birds and the others are woodland creatures. I'm very pleased with them.
