This week, my Creative Space has been about solving a few little problems by sewing some useful and practical objects.
Hong Kong, since we arrived in July, has been hot and humid. I find we are all drinking cold water from the fridge more often, it helps you to cool down, from the inside. But cups and glasses of cold water in a hot room sweat leaving little pools of water everywhere.
So some fabric coasters had to be made. No more little pools of water, the fabric coasters soak up the excess water. Sweaty glasses problem - solved.
The second problem we had was chopstick transportation (the kids training chopsticks) When going out for dinner, taking clean chopsticks for the girls is fine but bringing home dirty ones in your handbag or wrapped up in a flimsy serviette is not on (in my opinion)
So I made this extra long zippered pouch, lined with a waterproof fabric. Kids chopstick transportation problem - solved.
It took me two weeks, but I have now finished my latest stack of zippered pouches. I had to take and share a photo. I think they all look delicious. Gosh I am so addicted to fabric. I already have another (smaller) pile cut out and ready to sew up.
Happy creating (and problem solving) to you. Visit all the other Creative Spaces here.
