Project Pouch

I came across a sewing project a few days back and I immediately wanted to give it a try. It seemed straight forward, did not require anything other than fabric and a zipper, and looked to be a good next step from the basic skills I had been working on.

Photo of the Day

I’ve taken my time posting about seeing ‘New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-altered Landscape’ at SFMoma but not because it was disappointing or there wasn’t much to say.
