Yesterday, I made another tote bag, and then hemmed some other fabric for embroidery.
I used heavy interfacing for this one as well. So the first tote I made used heavy interfacing, and it was a pain to do the one step where you pull the correct side out, because the heavy interfacing makes the fabric thicker. But in the end, the bag is sturdier. The second tote bag only used medium interfacing, and while it was easier to perform that step, the bag itself is much weaker. So I think I will at some point remake that bag, maybe with a different pink fabric. This tote is also smaller than the other ones, because I wanted to do something different.
Something I should try is to make a tote and instead of using patterned fabric, but embroider something. I wonder if that would be a nice Christmas gift for people. ;__; I need to figure out gifts for people and if I am going to make something, I need to start working on it now.
No idea what to embroider on these handkerchiefs. They are cute and bright, so not really fitting of the ~elegant lolita aesthetic~, but then again, they are handkerchiefs and who really cares.
Doing a weekly theme on them would mean actually having to wash them every week. I also feel a little weird about putting words on them. I’d worry that people would ask why my handkerchief says “whatever”, or why I put my name on it. Initials alone are kind of boring too. At least for now, they are ready so once I have a good idea, I can start immediately.
