more yarn balls and pouches
The main inspiration for my yarn stamps was my favorite knitter. The above pouch was a gift for her and was just waiting for the stamp to be carved. I'm very pleased with how this little ball printed on linen.So, I'm making more!
In fact, I'm trying to make one every couple of days for the next few weeks. Each one is different in size, fabric selection and even prints.
It all depends on what scraps need to be used and my mood at the end of the night (when I've been whipping them up). This Indigo bunting Burlap one features the selvedge of the linen. I use a lot of deconstructed linen clothing for sewing, so I don't always have selvedge to work with. When I do, it feels like a treat, and I don't want it to go to waste.
Here's the back...
All of my zippers are vintage or recycled. Their color often dictates the direction of the pouch. It's an interesting way to approach these mini projects and really encourages me to explore my fabric stash in new ways.
