Sunday afternoon in the studio

Colorful goodie bag

It’s not often these days that I’m entirely on my own. I’m on maternity leave (most days of the week) with our second girl now 10 months. She is with me in the studio but she is the impatient type and doesn’t let me work much :)
Yesterday I went to the studio by myself for a couple of hours. Brought a bag of goodies (old colorful vintage finds that has been hanging in the wardrobe for a while) – maybe I could make something with it…
Have a lot of Copic markers that I love to use all the time while sketching – I needed something to bring them in, going back and forth from home to my studio. Cut up one of the blouses and made a pouch out of it. My small digital camera also got a cozy from a nuno-fabric.
I used a super good tutorial from Three bears for the pouches!

I love my Copics!

    Hi there, thankyou for your message on bestitched, your friend sounds great and I will try to remember that advice. sometimes the sense of ‘time wasted’ can be overwhelming but I have to just deal with that myself. I love the studio view I once had a studio in an old factory, the view was not so great! hehehehe.
