Sometimes I am so daft I scare myself.
For ages I've struggled with sketching directly onto the fabric before scribbling away on the sewing machine.
Although this wasted loads of fabric, I didn't want my designs to look the same.
But then I thought, why not draw my design, trace it and then stitch through the tracing paper?
Why didn't I think of that before!
And I don't think it looks mass produced because both of these patchwork pins were traced form the same sketch and they look different.
The one on the top seems a bit skittish and the little fellow above seems much more 'together' and self assured.
Do I sound bonkers now?
Here's the original sketch.
With this pair of pins they even turned out as different sexes!
