Loose Ends

circles clutch 1 circles clutch 2 circles clutch 3

when i started working on my embroidery book last year, all other projects were pretty much put on hold. the book is long done of course, but the longer i’m away from a project, the harder it becomes for me to pick it up again, no matter how excited i was at the outset. yet with the end of the year fast approaching, i’m finally feeling the urge to tie up loose ends.  this clutch was one.

at the time, i was fine tuning clutch construction and teaching myself basic jewelry making techniques to make dangly decoration to go on the side. for this one, i used print fabric like i often do before i move onto making embroidered versions. it saves a whole lot of grief that way, in the event that the clutch doesn’t turn out as i had imagined.

happily though, this one turned out to be one charming clutch.

去年本の契約が決まった時は、それだけで頭も手もいっぱい。当時製作中だった作品のほぼ全てが保留になってしまいました。本はとっくに終わったものの、長く放置しておいたらおいとくほどなかなかその作品たちと向き合えなく、気が付いたらこんなに時間が過ぎていて...でも今年中に形にしたい!という気持ちが強くなり、まずこのクラッチバッグを仕上げることにました。

こちらはクラッチバッグの制作手順やパターンの形の確認、あと横に付けるビーズの飾りを作るためのアクセサリーの基本テクニックを学ぶ目的で作っていました。新しいものを作る時は大抵こう。プリント地を何度か使って制作に慣れてから、刺繍版に移ります。こうすると想像外の結果の場合、刺繍が無駄になることが無いので。

今回は可愛らしく出来上がったので満足です☆
