My first padfolio and I got mail!


Here are photos of my first padfolio. The pattern is by Sue Bleiweiss and is available for free on Fibre and Stitch website. It fits a 5×8 pad of paper and I put a small calendar in the side pocket. I made the outer fabric from velvet, silk and scrim embellished on the machine. Then I added a top layer of gold organza and FME all over. I tired to be a little more careful with my FME but I’m still not all that practiced. But I can tell I’m getting a bit more control. I then torched the surface to burn off some of the gold to see the silk colors underneath. Then I made a cord by embellishing knitters tape, wool yarn and eyelash yarn together. I’m satisfied with how it turned out. It was a practice one – now to make some more for Christmas presents.


Here’s a cute fish postcard from Olga – thanks so much. I love the seaweed!
