Handmade.

Finished this art journal page recently. I used my darning foot to sew on the pieces of flat felt. (I love you, Mr. Darning Foot!)























Embedded are three quotes about hands and/or  handmade stuff - by Rilke, God & Douglas Coupland. Now who could ask for a better combination?
(handmade: art journal page with magazine cutouts, tape, muslin, embroidery backing, handmade felt, paint, ink, stitching)

Ek is mal oor Douglas Coupland! En vertel tog asseblief vir my wat is 'n darning foot?

A quote from God? Now that is really something!

Love the squiggly nature of the sewing thing. I nearly wrecked my machine trying to sew paper.After that I got a little craft sewing machine that is incredibly cheap- haven't even tried it yet but I think i might now that i see how wonderful yours looks.
A bee flew up my nose yesterday! OW!

For a sewing machine that is very clever handwriting.
