So, you’ve put together your whole garment or bag and it looks great, but one thing is missing. A closure. What do you need? A zipper? A button? Either or, it would be easiest to do it on a machine….. but with a different presser foot. “But Mel,” you ask “how on Earth do I do that?” Check it out here 😉
You can check out “Glovemaking 101” in my products link in the menu, or more easily click here to find out the secrets of how to make gloves yourself. I recorded my process of making a pair of gloves so you can watch and work along!
I also went on a two week trip to Japan with James & friends that we’d been planning for over a year, which mangled with all of my business plans but was totally worth it 🙂 I got to observe different fashions including the armor of the Samurai Warriors, Traditional Kimonos, and Harajuku. They were all really cool to see.
On top of those, we also went to a few themed restaurants where the costumes were amazing, like Robot Restaurant, Alice in Old Castle (an Alice in Wonderland themed restaurant), Kawaii Monster Cafe, and Alcatraz E.R. (a creepy hospital/jail themed restaurant).
We also got to drive go carts and dress in costumes for a mario cart type tour of Tokyo. I’m The Cheshire Cat. The trip was amazing!
