Stitched Items

I designed and made three of these wallets. They sit idle on my sewn cardboard shelves. 

Function. The sewing awl is good for making these.
 This is the wallet I use. I hacked it together two years ago, and it's so bad that it never fails.

 When my jeans get holes in them, I just patch them. Eventually they get so ragged I can't keep up and they retire. At least they can live on in internet pictures.
 I think when something inanimate is repaired, it takes on an element of life. Usually only living things heal. These jeans are probably the best example I have of that.


  1. I like this post, Dylan. Surprisingly deep, makes me want to sew my old jeans up. Guess I have to anyway cause I can't afford new ones... heh. Good to hear what you're up to anyway! -Emiko

  2. Thanks! Hand-sewing pants is kind of a deep experience itself. Meditative. Maybe that's just me.

    I clicked on your name; I had no idea you had a blog. Good to hear what you're up to too!
