There are many reasons on why people do handicraft, and one of my reasons is to keep my sanity. I even have an album in my facebook entitled "Craft for Sanity" to display some of my craft-works. It is true that making things from scratch works like a therapy to me.
It helps me stay calm and stable no matter how crazy my work load and life problems demand me. So without further ado, here is my last week therapy result..
Handmade Fabric Wallet
I literally hand-sewn each element of the wallet and enjoying the slow process even tough in the end my thumb gets numb (hey, that rhymes!)
There is a special girl of my brother in law who inspires me to make this wallet so I think I will send her this "baby" as a birthday gift. I hope she will like it.
It is not perfect just like my other craft-works, but I believe the flaws make my crafts becomes more personal.
I do hope that someday I'll be able to achieve perfection, but maybe I'll have to buy a sewing machine first before getting close to this target. (my birthday is in this December 25th, by the way, just in case you're wondering :P)
This is my first attempt of handmade fabric wallet and I can't wait to make a lot more. Just need some good reasons to start being crafty and escaping from my job's load again ;)
